The Arena District is also an entertainment area. Live entertainment, restaurants, and a movie theater keep it lively regardless of the season. The 200-year old Brewery District is another neighborhood entertainment scene, with plenty of bars and restaurants. Southtop Hilltop residents also enjoy nearby Scioto Audubon Park, a great outdoor recreation spot along the river.

Franklin University, less than five miles away, offers undergraduate and graduate degrees. The Columbus Metropolitan Library is across the street from the university. A number of transit stops along Sullivant Avenue make these and other locations accessible.
