Pataskala, Ohio

 

Drive 20 miles east of Columbus and you’ll have no trouble catching glimpses of small-town life in Pataskala.

The festive Pataskala Street Fair, for example, which faithfully draws a crowd each summer for carnival-style food, music, entertainment and fun in support of the local fire department. Or the nostalgic Nutcracker Restaurant, whose ‘50s diner-style decor and homestyle cooking have been winning over picky eaters for decades.
