Columbus is a fast-growing city with no shortage of unique and beautiful places to visit. Try something new this summer and explore one — or all — of these tried-and-true Columbus favorites that are perfect for solo travelers, couples, friends, families and grandkids.
Franklin Park Conservatory
This popular site in downtown Columbus offers a variety of beautiful gardens and exhibits to enjoy, plus senior and child entry discounts. Spend a relaxing day touring the expansive conservatory, including current visiting exhibits of a Bonsai display and a butterfly house.
The North Market is your one-stop farmers market open every day. A variety of merchants occupy the indoor space including butchers, florists, bakers, homewares and restaurants. Take the grandkids for a sweet treat or get your weekly shopping done with fresh food options.
The Book Loft
With 32 rooms full of books, everyone can find the perfect story. The Book Loft, which inhabits renovated pre-Civil War buildings, is a local favorite. Spend a day browsing the unbelievable amount of options and then enjoy a book over coffee next door at Stauf’s Coffee Roasters.
Columbus Park of Roses
The Park of Roses is a lesser-known gem in Columbus that’s definitely worth a visit. It is one of the largest public rose gardens in America, featuring more than 400 types of roses and several different gardens. Best of all, the park is free to visitors.
