This summer, be a tourist in your own city. It's the classic home-towner's syndrome: neglecting to take in the sites and history of one's own home. The Columbus Historical Society is offering a series of bus tours this spring and summer where you can take in the past, present and even the future of this city we love.
In two and a half hours, you will take in historical landmarks, cultural venues and more. The tour travels through downtown, hitting the Ohio Statehouse and the beautiful, new Columbus Commons; the Short North Arts District; German Village; the Arena District; the Discovery District; Olde Towne East; Franklin Park and more. The tour guide will share stories of national significance, international intrigue, and local history and lore. Sign us up.
The Vintage + Vision tours run on the third Saturday of the month through October. The April 19 tour sold out, so be sure to register early for the upcoming tours (next month's will be May 17). The cost is 30.00 per person, 27.00 for seniors, and 24.00 for CHS members. You must register and pay in advance, so call 614.224.0822 or visit their website. The tours depart from and return to the Columbus Historical Society at 333 West Broad Street and COSI.
