9 Foolproof Ways To Make Someone From Columbus Cringe
Here in Columbus, people are so nice! We love our city, we love to get to know one another, and we
definitely love showing out-of-owners all Columbus has to offer. Nevertheless, there’s a few things that might wipe the smile off even the nicest Columbusite’s face.
1. Mention parking in the Short North.
Ubering for a night out in the Short North? Yes, please. Parking in the Short North? No, thank you.
2. Show ice in the weather forecast.
We have rough winters, but as long as it's just cold and snowing that's fine. Once things get covered in a sheet of ice, though, that's just not cool.
3. Order non-local beer.
But... why? We have so much delicious local stuff! Check out these amazing

4. Say there’s nothing to do downtown.
Maybe in the past, but have you been down there lately? It's gorgeous and there's always something going on!
5. Think Columbus’s nature is boring.
No, we're not a mountain or beach city, but our nature is still oh so beautiful. Visit these excellent
hiking spots in Columbus
to enjoy our local scenery.
6. Eat only national chain pizza.
I mean there's nothing wrong about chain pizza restaurants
, but Columbus is the king of local pizza. Step out of the box! Check out the

7. Talk about non-Columbus sports teams.
Nope, you just can't root for a team that's not The Buckeyes, The Crew, or The Blue Jackets.
8. Think Columbus is "just another Midwest city."
9. Forget that Columbus is ranked on all sorts of Top 5 lists in the country.
We were ranked the smartest in the world, we're fifth in the country in craft beer, third in fashion, and have one of the best zoos.
