Columbus Ohio

Booking.com
columbus ohioColumbus Ohio, prides itself on being the “Biggest Small Town in America”, a reference to its small town atmosphere as much as a dig at those people that forget it’s actually on of the largest cities in the United States. While it might not be the most obvious of tourist destinations, the city actually has plenty to see and do, something an increasing number of tourists are finding out. Columbus is situated midway between Cincinnati and Cleveland on I-71 and midway between Pittsburgh and Indianapolis on I-70, making it fairly easy to drive to the city. Long haul passengers generally arrive at Port Columbus International Airport (CMH), which can be found about six miles east of the downtown district. With the airport only serving Toronto and Cancun outside of the U.S., international visitors should expect to make a changeover at one of the country main airports. columbus ohioThe Ohio Statehouse serves as a good starting point for visitors looking to explore all that the city has to offer. Looking like something out of Ancient Greece, the building offers a quality photo opportunity if nothing more. Popular museums in the town include the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), the Early Television Museum, the Columbus Museum of Art, and the Motorcycle Hall of Fame. Columbus is also home to a thriving theatre community, with the Palace Theatre and Southern Theatre among the venues hosting a variety of performances. Live music is also rife in the city, making a night on the tiles that little more exciting. The German Village is a friendly neighborhood just outside of downtown, and a popular place for tourists to take a stroll. Visit in October to enjoy the expectedly raucous Oktoberfest celebrations. Columbus has no shortage of places to walk. Franklin Park is a popular choice thanks in part to its botanical garden and conservatory. Less well known, and thus quieter, Glen Echo Park is a great place to get away from it all. Those looking to get some serious miles under their belt should seek out the 14-mile long Olentangy Trail, which doubles as a suitable biking trail. Popular family attractions include the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, the Zoombezi Bay waterpark and the replica of the Santa Maria, the ship that brought Christopher Columbus across the Atlantic. columbus ohioVisitors making their way to the city between August and November will find that if the Ohio State Buckeyes football team is playing at home, Saturday afternoons can be particularly quiet. Unless you’re in Ohio Stadium with 105,000 rabid football fans that is. The tailgate (where fans gather and party before the game) have to be seen to be believed. Columbus is also home to professional ice hockey, soccer and minor league baseball teams, all of which make for an enjoyable afternoon or evening’s entertainment. Columbus’ peak tourist season falls between June and September, coinciding with warmer temperatures and school holidays. The city does cater to winter tourists but with snow almost guaranteed between December and March, few arrange a winter trip.
