Things to do in Columbus Ohio
Finding things to do in Columbus Ohio is as easy as pie when you do a little bit of research. This city is rich in culture and features some truly amazing attractions for both year-round residents and tourists who are just passing through.
Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is one must-see location. Not only is this fun outdoor adventure family friendly and full of memorable photo ops, but it is perfect for animal lovers! We recommend going as early as possible to beat the mid-day heat in the summer time! Plus, you will see more animal activity in the early hours, and be sure to check out the scheduled feedings so that you can really take advantage of the experience! You will see plenty of animals, some from the Savannah including Lion, Giraffes, Zebras and Gazelle, and others from the Jungles. There are also Polar Bears and Penguins galore!
Dig science? We highly recommend visiting COSI. This research center and science museum is in the heart of downtown Columbus, Ohio. It first opened in 1964, and was designed by Arata Isozaki, a famous Japanese architect. This museum always has different events and exhibits going on, and even has seasonal events, so there is always something new to see no matter the time of the year you are visiting!
The Columbus Museum of Art is another destination that should not go un-explored. With a large collection of paintings and featured artists, your visual senses will be fully stimulated when you immerse yourself and explore the grounds.
Speaking of delightful visual experiences, you don’t want to miss the Columbus Park of Roses. This 13 acre meticulously landscaped part features, yes, you guessed it, roses! Take in the sweet scent of dozens of types of roses across the park and enjoy a pleasant picnic amongst the flowers, if you are working up an appetite!
Speaking of great places to grab a bite, Portia’s cafe is a great dining location that offers vegan dishes and organic meals. With over 500 amazing reviews online, you know it must be top notch! As another option, check out Acre, a casual farm to table restaurant that offers a delectable selection of meals, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Of course, after your long day of exploring, we highly recommend visiting our float spa in columbus ohio stopping by to visit us at Ebb & Float for a refreshing float session, private infrared sauna experience, or ARX workout! You will feel completely at ease in our float tanks and ready to take on the rest of your week!
