    I absolutely loved Franklin Park Conservatory & Garden. The topiaries/mosaics were beautiful. It is great that one can sit on the camel for a photo op, adults as well as children. How fun! The conservatory was full of interesting plants & trees. This garden ranks with Longwood & Atlanta among my favorites. It was rainy off & on so I enjoyed a light crowd while exploring. The gift shop is superb with a variety of items as well as plants. Staff was very friendly & helpful.

    This mall never fails to disappoint. We’re been coming to the this mall for over a decade. Every time we visit there is always new things added to this mall. It keeps growing and soon this mall might be a city of its own based off of this. I highly recommend this mall if you are in the area. This is the best mall to visit

    It was a first time trip for many in our group. There were many rooms to explore and we did not see it all. We spent 4 hours there including lunch time. It was a perfect way to spend a hot summer day. We had discounted tickets but lunch for 2 kids and 1 adult cost $47. The parking was extra but right on the property.

    Collection of a few dozen stall-based ethnic eateries with nearby casual or picnic tables for dining. Momo Ghar's Tibetan dumplings were delicious. Many other establishments also looked tempting. Parking adjacent the market.

    A nice walk adjacent large meadows and park areas. Frontal views of the waterway bridges with the downtown in backdrop practically beg to be photographed. The "Golden Hour" in this area would provide no shortage of fodder for perspective or modern life photographers. The views are beautiful but never quite achieve the feeling of a nature experience with the park set adjacent to the downtown area with roads running parallel. To those walking alone, there are some spots along the trails that do lead into darker areas. In broad daylight it's negligible. However you get the impression you may not want to stroll at dusk or later. Nonetheless, the views and area history are unique and well worth the time.

    Quaint neighborhood to eat, drink or shop or just walk around when in Columbus. A visit to Schmidt's Sausage Haus is always enjoyable.

    I had a great time at Buckeye Country Fest. The stadium was well run and had great stadium speakers. Luke Combs was absolutely amazing. Very happy. I really appreciated it. Will definitely be coming back.

    The whole Wicked play was unbelievable My favorite part was the end when they were sing "Defying Gravity ". Spectacular way to end it when Elphaba started rising up and singing. The audience was the best interaction crowd I have ever heard before. The cast and crew were the best. The orchestra was simply fabulous. It was amazing to see a play at the Ohio Theater. I had forgotten how close you really are to the stage once you are seated in the Loge section. Best place to seat for anything at the Theater. I highly recommend this play to anyone older than 13. That's just my personal opinion.

    My teen and I came here last year, loved it, and vowed that we'd return with her sisters, so we did. It was just as fun the second time around. This time I brought all my kids and one of their friends (11-17) . Everyone had a great time. The teens went off on their own and I stayed with my 11 year old. She was a bit freaked out at first, but became more confident once she saw how interactive it all was. By the end, she didn't want to leave and was really good at solving the various puzzles in some of the rooms. All told, we spent probably about two and a half hours here. We will definitely return. My 17 year old is already begging to go back. Also, even though there was only about a year between our visits, some rooms were already completely different and others had changes as well, so I think multiple visits are well worth it. The gift shop has some reasonably priced items. You exit through it. Finally, it's worth it to go on a weekday morning. We often had entire rooms, sometimes even sections to ourselves this visit. Last time we went on a Saturday morning and it was incredibly crowded.

    The Colimbus Museum of Art is a modern facility which can be viewed in three hours at a leisurely pace. I came speciffically to view the exhibits, "We stand with Ukraine" and "I hear America Singing: Contemporary Photography".While famous works by artists are on display like Rodin, Picasso, Matisse and Rubens, CMOA has many other strengths. I particularly enjoyed the many helpful docents who will fully analyze works of art for you. They are engaging, upbeat and highly knowlegable. The Wonder Room allows a hands-on experience for all ages and an area to display your work. The Schokko Cafe is adjacent to the Patricia M. Jorgenseal Sculptue Garden with a reflective pool and table and chairs set-up to enjoy your treats.

    Masks are not required at this time. The museum is generally open 10-5 but is free on Sundays. On Thursday nights CMOA hosts a "Bar, Art, & Music> event from 5 pm-9 pm. The price is $5. Parking is $5 or it is free with a purchase at the Museum Gift Shop. Prices are very reasonable at the shop and they have a wide variety of items. Maps of the museum can be obtained on-line or at the admissions desk.

    The current admission prices are (adults $18), (seniors 60+, students, and children 4-17, $9). Veterans and their families are free.

    The owner of the museum, Steve, is a really great guy and very open to sharing stories for every vehicle and what makes each unique. Really great collection of harder to find and historical automobile and military paraphernalia. Highly recommend. Be sure to call and schedule time to meet with Steve.

    The staff does everything possible to make your visit a pleasant experience. Just don’t bring any weapons, pocket knife or mace.ladies please leave the handbag in the car if it’s larger than 5X8.
    We work there some evenings just to stay off the couch.

    Spent two days for parent & student orientation for our new freshman. Wow Ohio State certainly has it down to a science. Very well organized and lots of great information. Looking forward to many more activities on campus over the years.
