I love Columbus; there's a great arts community (both visual and performing), and there are many beautiful areas. Work continues to be completed downtown to make the area prettier, and encourage more people to live in the city. There are several parks downtown which are nice to relax in, and which often have events.

I don't think it's exactly the safest place to live-- it's highly dependent on which area of Columbus you're in. There are a great many neighborhoods/parts of downtown where I feel completely safe. But of course, there are other areas, sometimes even within blocks of a safe place, where I feel very uncomfortable.
Overall, my street, the area Southfield is a great neighborhood to grow up in because everyone is like family and that's the best type of people to live around.
