We are traveling to Columbus for a 3 day weekend in May. It'll be myself, a friend of mine, and my 2 boys aged 5 and 7. Our big reason for being there is for COSI, but we're looking for 2-3 other smaller/easier and preferably outdoors things to do on Friday afternoon and Sunday morning. Stuff like a cool park, playground, nature center, etc. My boys love dirt, legos, bugs, reptiles, and sand pits.
We'll also need some good food type places- nothing that is a chain outside of Columbus please. We plan to check out the Book Loft but would also love to see any really neat libraries Columbus might have. That's kind of our thing. Thanks so much!
