One thing that really sets Grandview apart from other neighborhoods is its sense of community. A fabulous example of that is the Grandview Hop, a street merchant extravaganza which promotes local business. The Hop runs from May-September, always from 5-9 on the last Saturday of the month. Part of Grandview Avenue is shut down for vendors, with wares ranging from jewelry to coasters, or peddling treats like popsicles and cupcakes. Many of the brick-and-mortar shops and restaurants are open too, with sales and happy hour specials. Often you can catch live music and activities as well.

The Columbus Young Professionals Club (CYP) recently took over the running of the event, and made it even larger! I recently attended the Hop, for the CYP Club’s 10th anniversary bash and had such a blast. Here are some of my favorite photos from the evening:
If you are looking for a fun way to enjoy downtown Grandview and shop at the same time, don’t miss the Hop! You can catch the final Grandview Hop of the season on September 26. Find out more about the event here: https://grandviewhop.com
