Whether you grew up in Powell, Dublin, Upper Arlington, Hilliard, Worthington, or anywhere else in Central Ohio, this list will definitely be relatable to you. Here are 20 signs that you grew up in Central Ohio!
I cannot even count how many times I have woken up to a clear sunny day and then after I take a shower I come back to clouds and rain. You could literally need a parka the entire morning, and by noon, you could wear a bathing suit.
It is hard to live in Central Ohio without being a Buckeye fan. One would think they were a professional team the way we treat them. During a Saturday in the Fall, you know that the one thing everyone will be doing is watching the game. You BLEED scarlet and grey.
And for those who have never heard of this, yes I said it, a field of 109, 8-foot-tall, 1,500 lb. ears of corn. It is one of the most bizarre things to explain to those who are not from the area. We really take pride in corn here in Central Ohio.
ESPECIALLY in the winter or if you cannot drive. The most entertaining thing to do is go to Walmart and walk around. Running around aisles and making a ruckus with all your friends-something about it is actually very fun. There’s always that one friend who will try to jump through the caged pit of large plastic balls that are for sale.
Okay I did not even realize this was a weird thing to do. To me, at least pop just sounds so much better than soda. Soda is such a plain word, but pop is fun. When you drink a Coke or Sprite, it sort of pops in your mouth, which makes pop the perfect word for those types of drinks.
Lebron is the king and there are no competitors. Do not even try to mention names like Steph Curry, Kawhi Lenord, or Russell Westbrook around these Lebron fans. Expect most Central Ohio people saying “Warriors blew a 3-1 lead.”
You take a lot of pride in the zoo. Considering it is one of the best zoos in the nation, it makes perfect sense that you love it so much. It doesn’t matter how hot or cold it is outside, expect the zoo to always be packed.
Cosi, Short North, the zoo, North Market, Zoombezi Bay, Franklin Park Conservatory, The Scioto Mile, and The Field of Corn 😉
Let’s face it, C-Bus just is not a poppin’ place for a lot of popular musicians. Don’t get me wrong I have been to so many concerts in Columbus, but there are a whole lot of people I would have loved to see in Columbus that did not come here.
We have Graeters, Cold Stone, Baskin Robbins, Dairy Queen, Whits, Ritas, Jenis, Handels, and not to mention, the plethora of fro-yo places. It does not matter where you are at in Central Ohio, you can always find an ice cream place to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Each city is literally always building a new roundabout. Dublin just put a new one in and it is a complete HAZARD. There are literally three roundabouts all together in Hilliard- it is actually terrifying. Sooner or later it will just be all roundabouts.
There are so many colleges in Ohio, but these four are the big four and practically everyone you know is going there.
For three days every year, everyone gathers at this enormous festival and eats lots of fried food and drinks copious amounts of alcohol.
All the kids who live in the suburbs outside of Columbus hop on the COTA bus for a twenty minute ride to downtown C-bus to see fireworks. It is hot and crowded, you are guaranteed to lose someone from your group- but there’s great food and memories.
The 270 outer-belt can turn a 30-40 minute drive to 20 minutes, unless it is rush hour. You do not realize how lucky we are to have it until you are driving somewhere else.
We love our Wendy’s here in Central Ohio. Whether it’s a delicious cold frosty, crispy chicken nuggets, or a juicy fresh never frozen burger, you love it.
Whether it is for college or because their family is moving, people always make it back to Central Ohio. They will constantly complain about how much they dislike it, but we all know deep down, we love our home of Central Ohio.
