As a busy city, Columbus caters to all, with football, hockey, baseball, basketball, and soccer keeping sports fans happy, while the Metropolitan Park District features a selection of beautiful parks with diverse ecology. Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, the annual arts festival, the yearly Restaurant Week Columbus festival and the lively bars of the trendy North Market District ensure a busy vibrant lifestyle for all. Columbus' main industries include education, banking, insurance, defense, aviation, energy, steel, medical research, healthcare, retail, and technology. However, as a state capital, governmental positions account for the largest section of the workforce.
