On the more relaxed side, Columbus is a huge tailgate city, thanks to the excitement of college football season. In fact, the city practically shuts down on game days. More than 90 percent of the people in Columbus are football fans. They will cut you for talking trashing about the Buckeyes. If you happen to go out immediately before or after a home football game, good luck getting back. The roads simply shut down.
