Exploring Easton Town Center
By Theresa Russell

It’s more than just shopping at Easton Town Center and of course, shopping is taken to a different level at this expansive retail center in Columbus.

Easton Town Center: The Goods

If you can’t find it at Easton, you really don’t need it. The stores run from the local to well-known chains. Think Trader Joe’s, Macy’s, and Total Comfort. But that hardly touches the tip of the iceberg of the variety of shops available within this 1.7- million square feet of mixed-use space. You are certain to find whatever you want – and even more- in this open air shopping center. One of the largest items you can buy at Easton is a Tesla!

Easton Town Center: The Food

Shopping definitely creates an appetite and there is no lack of eating options at Easton Center. The tough part will be narrowing down the choices. Just like with the shopping, there are national chains like Smith and Wollensky and Cheesecake Factory or local eateries like Café Istanbul, Hot Chicken Takeover or Mitchell’s Ocean Club. From a snack or drink to a full meal, you will find something to satiate yourself without having to leave the premises.

Easton Town Center: The Entertainment & Events

As if shopping and strolling around isn’t entertainment in itself, there are several venues that welcome you including Funny Bones Comedy Club, an AMC theater and coming soon: LEGOLAND® Discovery Center. If you don’t get enough of a workout strolling around you could entertain yourself at the Lifetime Fitness, which sponsors free Yoga on the Square every Friday morning during the summer months.  Free concerts, the Movies by Moonlight film series and the annual Easton Art Affair are popular throughout the year. Individual retail establihments also offer their own events. Refer to the schedule for a complete calendar of events.

Easton Town Center: The Lodging

If your idea of shopping is more of a destination event than a single shopping trip, you will be happy to know that there are three lodging options available. The Courtyard by Marriott, the Columbus Hilton at Easton and Residence Inn are all great places to relax after a long day of exploring the shops.

Easton Town Center: Getting Around

Parking is free and plentiful, but for prime spots there are meters on the street. Proceeds from these parking fees go to charity. The Easton Trolley has three stops with one connecting to the Easton Gateway section of the complex. No need to find another parking space when using this method of transportation. Shared bicycles are also available. Make a day of it and visit Easton Center in Columbus.
