What do I need to know before retiring in Columbus?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Columbus, they said...
"Before retiring in Columbus, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is slightly higher than the national average. They should also research the city's climate, which is generally mild with hot summers and cold winters. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with the city's public transportation system, which includes buses, light rail, and a bike-share program. It is also important to research the city's cultural attractions, such as its museums, galleries, and performing arts venues. Finally, expats should consider the city's healthcare options, which include a variety of hospitals and clinics," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Columbus, the United States.
"The area is undergoing a negative shift in the local economy. The lower income areas are growing rapidly. People who have the opportunity are trying to move farther away from central Ohio. Public transportation is not easy to large portions of Franklin County making owning a car extremely important. Because of gas prices, of lower incomes can no longer get to work if they are not on the public bus and close to a bus stop. There is also growing crime at these bus stops making them unsafe in many areas," commented one expat who made the move to Columbus, US.
