A list of to do’s in Columbus:

August 5, 2009 at 1:06 PM 1 comment

Although I lived in Columbus for a few years prior to living in Michigan, I never really explored the city.  I think it’s time do all the “touristy” things this city has to offer. While exploring I hope to find the best places for food, drinks, and entertainment =)

1. North Market:  I hear this is an excellent place for fresh fruits, veggies, and even yummy cooked meals from various countries!

2. Pita Hut N’ Grille:  The best shawarma and falafel in Columbus?  I’ll be the judge of that!

3. Hot Air Balloon Festival: Um, I love hot air balloons!! How could you not?

4. The Book Loft: One of the largest bookstores in the country, it has expanded to 32 rooms and contains nearly 750,000 books!!

5. Gallery Hop: On the first weekend of every month, art galleries remain open late to show their latest collections.

6. German Village: It’s an old historical village, that German’s once lived in.

7. Clintonville Farmers Market: I discovered this a few years ago actually, it’s an incredible farmers market.  The most incredible part of it is the fresh donuts the Amish make.  They basically melt in your mouth, okay so they’re pretty much the BEST donut I have ever tasted.

8. Alum Creek: There’s a doggie park here, it apparently has a large lake just for dogs.  Diesel would be the happiest dog in the world here.

9. State Fair:  I just want to eat my way through the fair: funnel cakes, fried cheese on a stick, elephant ears, ice cream, corn dogs, cotton candy…

10. Columbus Museum of Art:

11. Franklin Park Conservatory & Botanical Garden

12. Brewery District: Many bars and restaurants with excellent ratings in this area.

13. Jennis Ice Cream: Fantastic  ice cream!

I’m sure there’s a lot more to explore in Columbus, but I think this is a good start! If anyone has any other recommendations, please share :)!
