High St. is the backbone of Columbus and has arguably some of the best features, foot traffic and architecture for the entire metro. From German Village, Downtown, Short North, Ohio State Campus, Clintonville and Worthington, and everything in between. Does Cincinnati and Cleveland have a street that could be considered the backbone of the city and how do they compare to High St. Thanks

Cleveland doesn't really have one main all encompassing street like High. But Cleveland has some cool streets: Euclid Avenue, Shaker Boulevard, W. 25. When I think of "backbone", I'd probably think more of Euclid Avenue, given that it goes from Public Square to Playhouse Square to University Circle and all the way to Willoughby. However, it is only on the east side. The areas around parts of Euclid do have some of the best cultural institutions and architecture and various other attractions.

Cincinnati does not have one straight and flat main artery that defines the city. Vine street which takes you from the river, through downtown, into and throughout OTR , up the hill, right by UC and Clifton , to the Cincinnati Zoo is close.

Agreed. Because of Cincinnati's hilly topography, bisected by a large river separating it from its NKY metro, no Cincy thoroughfare can be compared to that of High Street in Columbus--one of the straightest and most significant "urban main streets" anywhere in the USA. Apples and oranges; like playing 2-D checkers, then playing a game of 3-D checkers--a world of difference.

Not Cleveland or Cincy, but Woodward Ave. in Detroit and Meridian Ave in Indy are somewhat similar.

In Ohio's major cities, I can't think of any roads that are similar....

Yeah, High is pretty unique in the state, not only for bisecting all of Columbus north to south, but because it's a highway outside of the city and also happens to be the focal point of city development along its entire length.

It's a combination of Euclid Ave. and the RTA Red Line being that University Circle, CSU/Downtown, the East Bank and Ohio City are connected by the 2 of them. You don't even need a car. A $5 day pass will get you anywhere you need to go along that stretch (as well as other places). If you wanted to drive it, you could also divert to either Superior or Ontario to Carnegie at Public Square.

Reading Road would probably be the closest match
