I love going into this ice cream stand. It is like stepping back in time to the 1920’s. With the marble counters, soda jerks, and the old player piano. I have had many an ice cream there and just listened to the piano and imagined what it would have been like when it was brand new.
Must go if you ever in Columbus.

I wish I had more time to walk around and see everything. I went see the covered bridge, but there looked like there was so much more to see. It was quite large, clean and well kept. Looked like a nice place for a walk or a picnic. So many different areas & artwork to explore.

I took my grandkids to Columbus to visit the Kidscommons children's museum across the street. We checked out the indoor playground in the Commons mall and the grandkids climbed all over the sculpture for a half hour, playing tag. The sculpture is about 3 stories high, but there is heavy netting around each platform to prevent falling. Recommended age is 5-12, but there are some smaller playground areas for toddlers. Best part, it's free!

This starkly beautiful memorial appears to simply rise from the lawn, but once you get to walk through the columns and read the stories etched in the stone, you get a real sense of the loneliness of war, no matter which war.
Well done Columbus, a beautiful statement.

This is a very educational place to visit with your kids and the parents will enjoy it alot too. I have an 8 yr old Grandchild and she loves it everytime we go. The local school also take the students on field trips here. They have everything to do,and play with. Older children would enjoy it also, it is not just for little kids. I enjoyed it too.

I can only imagine what it is like to experience a church service like one you would experience here. It is a theater in the round type of sanctuary where you would be staring across at your fellow members and watching their every move. The architect even designed the parking lot with hedges that funnel the members to a central path as they enter the church This is an extremely interesting place.

If you are interested in architecture, you do need to go on a guided tour (Columbus Architectural Tour) that includes seeing the inside of this sanctuary. Your Guide will give background history and point out things that make this church unique. It is well worth the money.

We stopped here while driving up north. You got 6 tastings for $4 which is pretty good. We enjoyed a lot of the wines that they had available for tasting. The restaurant was not quite open when we were there, but what they were getting ready did smell good. It may seem hard to find, as it is in the middle of the corn fields, and the GPS got us there fine, even with a few detours and closed roads. I think it was worth the extra driving to find it! Next time we need to stay for lunch!

Very nicely done. Small. Free. Won't take long to visit but definitely worth stopping to see. They take donations. Learned a lot about gliders which I didn't know before. Not sure if this museum is open every day. Located across from the airport terminal. If you are hungry grab either breakfast or lunch at Hangar 5 restaurant. Great value and food. Located in airport terminal.

Attended a wedding there, the church was big and bright. It was clean and roomy. The wedding we were at had several instruments and singers which the church had a lot of room and accommodations for them.
