I am a single young professional planning to relocate from miami, Florida to columbus. I need advice in terms of where I should be looking to live. At this time I would be looking to rent an apartment/condo. I will be working at Children's hospital and would like a fairly reasonable commute. Plus be in a community that is easily accessible to shopping, entertainment etc.

Would appreciate your suggestions

Well Bexley (just to the East) and German Village (to the SW) are the closest commutes to Children's. I don't know your price range but the homes there would tend to be rather pricey and probably not so many young professionals in the area. For more rental properties you might look a little further to the NW, closer to OSU's campus. The Short North, Victorian Village, Italian Village, Grandview, or Clintonville are all areas with affordable rentals, a large population of young people, and a reasonable commute to Children's. Unless you want to live the college lifestyle you will want to stay away from anything between about 11th Ave and Oakland.

I second the advice of the above poster, all of those young professional areas are great. Near Bexley Eastmoor or Berwick has more rentals, and it is an areas that surrounds Bexley.

Also, I would add Grandview Heights area just west of Victorian Village has a lot of rentals and young professionals, and is a small commute, without highway if you like, to childrens.

All of the areas mentioned are very close to childrens, Clintonville is the furthest, but still only a few exits from downtown/childrens area.

I suspect that the commute from any of these areas (Clintonville, Grandview Heights, Upper Arlington, Short North and any of the Villages) will be negligible compared to Miami, FL. I'm partial to C'ville myself, but you might really enjoy the Short North. There is an apartment complex in Clintonville that is on the Olentangy River, and right off the bike path. It is an older complex, but it has some newer sections. If you have been in Miami all of your life, you are in for a considerable climate change!

Before you make a final choice, Children's has many community branch locations. Are you working at the Children's Hospital Main Campus? Here is a map of all the locations:
