As the shining capital of Ohio, the quaint city of Columbus is known to offer a perfect mix of of old world and new world, something that can easily be seen by hip eateries along the Scioto River as well as quaint 1800s homes in The German Village. Look forward to it all with the right ride, whether you’re the type of person to simply need drop-offs to and from the airport or the type who wants a private lift to see it all in slow motion. Stay walking-distance to downtown by reserving a room in the Uptown District, or get the perk of shuttles to John Glenn Columbus International Airport by staying one of many on-site hotels, the Hilton Garden Inn and Fairfield Inn being some of the most popular. Without a doubt, there’s a lot to more to see than what’s at first glance, even more if you’ve got the time to push through it.
Start the day with a cliche view of the city from Scioto Audubon Metro Park, renowned for is 100+ acres of riverside getaway condensed into a fishing, wall-climbing, hiking oasis. Delve into the quaint charm of The German Village when you get the chance, enjoying renowned eats from Schmidt’s Sausage Haus und Restaurant as well as cobblestone plazas that transport each passerby; mind, body, and spirit. Experience the impact of the region full force by taking time to admire the unique architecture as well, whether it be an inspiring glance at The Ohio Statehouse 19th-century Greek Revival or a peek at the Old English accents inside Kelton House Museum & Garden. Remember to leave room for dessert at the end of a filling day, taking time for 24-hour sweets at Buckeye Donuts as well as jumbo burgers served at The Thurman Cafe.
