I'm moving to Columbus Ohio. Can anyone tell me about the city?
I have kids, ages 2 1/2 and 8 weeks, so I need to know about children's activities. I also don't have a place to live yet, we're staying with family until we find a place, so I need to know what are good neighborhoods with relatively cheap places to rent. Anyone who knows of any job openings could let me know. I have a B.S. in psychology and my boyfriend only has a high school diploma. If any of you have kids, please let me know what the school systems are like and where some good preschools/day care centers are located so I can check them out. We are moving from a small town in Kentucky that has no opportunities for either of us and terrible school systems. I'm very stressed, so please help!

Being in the suburbs puts you close to many activities... More

The Dublin ( north side) and Easton ( East of course) suburbs are superb as far as amenities and the people who live in the area. If you like historic, try Germantown, an area just south of the city center that has many beautifully restored old buildings and a well kept neighborhood. All of the above are the stand outs... More
