The Polaris Entertainment District is a hot bed of activity, both
family friendly and business oriented. Located just outside of the I-270
interstate off of I-71 on Polaris Parkway, the area is ideal for those
traveling through central Ohio, with access to the two major freeways in
the area. Polaris also includes a variety of large brand hotel options
of all kinds, from full service to extended stay. But Polaris is not
just for travelers, as the suburbs of Powell, Olentangy, Westerville and
Worthington all surround the area. This gives a home town, local feel
to the sprawling consumer landscape.
Polaris Fashion Place is the feature attraction, which includes 180
specialty stores, many of which are new to the area. There are six
anchor stores to the central Ohio area including Saks Fifth Avenue, Von
Maur, Macy's, Sears, JCPenney, and The Great Indoors. The mall recently
went through a $45 million dollar addition to the facility with the
inclusion of an awesome outdoor space with a variety of shops but also
entertainment options such as pubs, restaurants and Dave and Busters!
West of Polaris is the quaint suburb of Powell, which really brings guests the homey feel of central
Ohio. Downtown Powell is a small business hub with enough small shops
and cafes to spend the day. This area is directly on your way to two of
Central Ohio’s premiere tourist attractions. The Columbus Zoo and
Zoombezi Bay water park located just 10 minutes west of the Quest
facility. The Zoo area also features two golf courses, so really gives
options for the whole family.
the east is another Central Ohio staple, the Hoover Dam and reservoir
located in Westerville Ohio. This five square mile dam was opened in
1955 and is a major water source for the city of Columbus. The reservoir
area also features a city park with hiking and biking trails as well as
a Frisbee golf course. Be sure to check out the docks for fishing and
boating as well!
