A rich history of jazz culture and easy access to the city define Columbus' King-Lincoln district. Locally described as "the Cradle of Jazz," the neighborhood borders downtown to the west, and residents enjoy quick trips to several city parks to the east. The district provides plenty of options for houses and apartments for rent, many clustered on Miami and Hamilton avenues. Immediate access to I-71 makes travel and commutes a breeze.
The arts truly take center stage in the King-Lincoln district, which serves as the historic home of the long-thriving Columbus jazz scene. The district's King Arts Complex on Mount Vernon Avenue stands as the local hub for celebrating the soul and culture of the neighborhood's strong art, music, and theater scene. Coffee lovers dig Urban Spirit Coffee Shop & Gallery for its java and live entertainment.
