5 Cool Things to Do with Visitors in Downtown Columbus

Delightful destinations to impress out-of-town guests.

Like most locals, you probably take what’s right in front of you for granted. It’s no big deal – until an out-of-town family member or friend makes plans for a visit. Then, suddenly, it’s a problem. A big one.

Such desperation can lead to chaos, mayhem, and in-fighting among your online friends. Forget the advice. Forego the drama. We’ve got you covered. Here’s how to entertain visitors (and enjoy it!) while showing off our fine and friendly city.
