What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Dining

An important element to choosing a place to live—arguably the most important element—is food. Luckily, Westerville has plenty of food options for every occasion.

BRU Burger Bar

BRU Burger Bar is definitely a favorite in the Westerville community! It’s a regional chain and a great place to grab a burger, fries, and a beer—plus a delicious milkshake, if you have the room. There are also gluten free and kid-friendly options, so everyone is welcome!

Uptown Deli and Brew

Uptown Deli and Brew is a must on the list of Westerville eateries. Located in historic Uptown Westerville, here you can get a great deli sandwich as well as locally made craft beer. The deli actually shares a building with Temperance Row Brewing Company, Westerville’s first brewery! Besides a great place to get a sit down meal, the deli also functions as a market where you can buy artisan meat, cheese, bread.

The Wine Bistro

The Wine Bistro is another restaurant with three locations in the area, but don’t let that fool you into thinking you won’t have a good meal. Great for a romantic dinner or even a private tasting, this is definitely the place you’ll want to go for a fancier meal. And don’t miss their happy hour specials every day of the week!

Sightseeing

With a surprising connection to prohibition, Westerville is a town rich with history. Check out these sites for a fun and educational day!

Anti-Saloon League Museum

Beginning as far back as the 1850s, Westerville was one of the first places in the U.S. to ban the sale of alcohol—and consequently became a driving force behind Prohibition in the 20th century. Head on over to the Anti-Saloon League Museum to peruse documents and artifacts from this era in the Westerville Public Library.

Hanby House State Memorial

Hanby House is another memorial in Westerville that’s well worth the visit. Originally home to William Hanby, Bishop of the United Brethren in Christ Church as well as the co-founder of Otterbein University, the house also played a key role in the Underground Railroad. Today you can attend tea at Hanby House, which includes lectures and reenactments about tea and the history of Hanby House.

Historic Uptown Westerville

Historic Uptown Westerville is a great place to walk through history—and get a little shopping done at the same time. The area is filled with restaurants, clothing stores, and shops making it the perfect place to run errands or just spend the day window shopping with the family. Take a walk to soak in the historic storefronts and shop local businesses as well!
