Columbus overview

For a small city, Columbus has a lot to offer. Once somewhat hidden in the shadows of Cincinnati and Cleveland, Ohio's capital city has emerged to offer visitors world-class culture, sports, entertainment and a vibe all its own. Enjoy a day at the zoo, aquarium or the nationally-known science center. Art lovers will relish the collections at the Columbus Museum of Art and gardeners will revel in the magnificent roses at Whetstone Park. The Franklin Conservatory and Botanical Garden also boasts beautiful flora and fauna. And the city is chock-full of government landmarks, both historic and modern. Spend the weekend savoring celebrated attractions and exploring unique neighborhoods, all served-up in the welcoming, friendly Columbus style.
