During my trip to Ohio, I deiced to sneak on over to Indianapolis for a few hours to snap up some pictures of downtown. So much to see here. The Circle Center Mall was great, got a lot of pictures here. Then went over to Monument Circle. From here you can get a glimpse of the statehouse as well as many other downtown buildings. The day was quite wet though, as a storm rolled through just as I got back to the mall. Had to catch the bus back to Columbus, it was still raining very hard. But the storm started to to let up after it seemed like it would never end. Made it back to the terminal just in time to catch the bus, although got a little wet making the two block journey from the mall to the bus station.
Leaving for Cincinnati from Downtown Columbus on the Megabus. The Megabus features double-decker buses and I got a front window seat, although I had to pay an extra five dollars for this seat.
OK, I skipped over five years from the last post which took place in 2011 to this one, which takes place today. Since I am rebuildin this blog, I will have the blogpost for 2012- spring 2016 up soon. The pictures of these trips can be found in the gallery.
After nearly a decade since I visited Columbus, I thought it was time to return. Staying on Morse Road, I took the High Street bus down to Fifth Ave. and started heading west on Fifth.
Fifth Avenue runs through Victorian Village and borders the OSU campus on the south. It then crosses the Olentangy River and heads into Grandview Heights.
Victorian Village boast some of Columbus’ finest architecture, colorful, old Victorian homes that date back to the early 20th century. Many of these homes were once threatened by the bulldozer for modern development. However, due to strong opposition most of these homes were saved and the area has become a historical district.
