In the heart of Ohio lies the capital of Columbus, a city known not only for the diehard Ohio State University students and alumni, but the culturally rich art scene, perfectly preserved German Village, Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, and the expansive parks throughout the city. This is a city where you can truly do it all. Award-winning restaurants are a dime a dozen and concerts take over the nightlife scene. Outdoor adventurists can meander along the Scioto River flowing through downtown or head to one of the several parks overlooking the city. Art enthusiasts and history buffs could spend weeks sifting through the exhibits and collections at the several museums spread throughout the city.
While the downtown acts as a mecca for entertainment, try venturing outside of the city into the surrounding towns and you’ll find a home-away-from-home. Granville is a New-England style community known for a thriving winemaking scene. Some of the districts just north of the city boast urban eateries and shopping centers with unique offerings. Dotted around the town are inns, B&Bs, and hotels that are just as special as this magnificent city. Stay in Victorian-era houses, stone sided mansions, and relaxing inns during your time in Central Ohio.
