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.

Don’t get us wrong. Snowmen (and snowwomen) are fantastic. It’s just that with the 27 inches of snow that Columbus averages each year, it can get a little, well, same-old, same-old, rolling and stacking the white stuff.

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.
