“Home of the Columbus Blue Jackets!”
Nationwide Arena is a multi-purpose arena, in Columbus, Ohio, USA. It opened in 2000 and is the home of the Columbus Blue Jackets, of the NHL. It is one of three facilities in Columbus (along with Greater Columbus Convention Center and Franklin County Veterans Memorial Auditorium) that hosts events during the annual Arnold Classic, a sports and fitness event hosted by former professional bodybuilder and Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger. The area surrounding Nationwide Arena, appropriately called the Arena District, houses bars, clubs and a movie theater. The Columbus Clippers, a AAA baseball team in the International League, play in the newly constructed Huntington Park nearby. Columbus uses the arena as a drawing point for the city with the other establishments feeding off of the foot traffic. The Lifestyle Communities Pavilion concert venue, and Arena Grand Theatre adjacent to the Nationwide Arena property, completes the entertainment complex.
A great place to see a hockey game. Blue Jackets games are always a good time and very affordable. Be sure to check out the display of all the hats thrown on the ice from hat tricks.
Saw Coldplay here and was pretty impressed with our seats. The place was packed. Staff wasn't very friendly, but I get that they were probably a bit stressed.
