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.

In our panicked state, most of us jump all over social media asking for recommendations on extra-special, out-of-the-ordinary things to do, see, and experience.

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.

Best Snow-Day Activities in Downtown Columbus

How to spend a snowy day – without building another snowman.

Snow, glorious snow. It has its merits: school closings, hot chocolate, and winter woolies. It has its drawbacks too: boredom, restless kids, and snowmen – lots of snowmen.

So, when you’ve been-there, done-that with the snowperson thing, check the weather forecast, check your mood, and check this list for 10 ways to while away a winter’s day.
