During our 2013 Readers Survey, we asked for top picks for tourist destinations which we presented as a Top 10 list during the unveiling of those results in December.

The Top 10 is below: Central Ohio is home to a robust greenway system that includes 16 regional metro parks and over 200 city parks in Columbus and its suburbs.
Fresh from the army, the elder Ricart wanted a business where he could support his family, which at that time included his wife, the late Alta Ricart, and one son, Paul F. From his family's home in Canal Winchester, he routinely walked under Route 33 through a 4-foot drain pipe to get to Ricart Ford, all the while toting an old medical bag given to him by his family doctor that was filled with young Fred's tools.

Ask any Cenral Ohioan who Fred Ricart is, and a majority will immediately mention one or two of the 100 TV commercials that Fred and his beautiful wife, Lynne, have produced over the past 30 years to lure customers to the family's new-car dealership in Groveport. In Central Ohio, Fred's slogan is as well known as Fred's face.
They'll talk about the guitar Fred always carries and probably comment on how corny some of his ads can be. They'll wad up their left fist and swing in an arc that starts from their chin and ends near their right shoulder. But there's far more to Fred Ricart than an advertising icon.
