The Daily Growler

Reviewed By JJTOH - Ohio

If you love beer, you will find plenty from which to choose and people knowledgable about the day's choices. This place is all about the beer; everything else is secondary. The ambiance is, well, pretty much nonexistent and seating is rudimentary. It can be hard to find a seat if you want to grab a pint or two but there most people are friendly about sharing space. Love, love, love that they wash growlers and give you a clean one. If beer is not your preference, you'd be better off elsewhere.

Ohio Theater

Broadway shows are performed in this historic theater.

Reviewed By trico40 - Ohio

Took family to see the Nutcracker on Christmas Eve. Beautiful theater, kind and pleasant staff, terrific acoustics, easy parking (I actually parked on a close flat lot which was free on Sundays rather than under the Statehouse). The show was terrific! This might become a new family tradition.

Wow, this will take your breath away if you love chocolate. The art is performed in a world class style. The flavors and aromas are just what I remember from the finest shops I have ever been in.

We were driving through Columbus on our way back to Michigan. We weren't able to make it to a game but the staff was still very accommodating to our family. Looks like a great place for anyone to have a good time.

North Market Farmer's Market

Central Ohio's only public market has been serving the community since 1876.

Reviewed By T W - New Albany, Ohio

Located just south of Short North, this farmer's market is a great place to grab lunch. Several different restaurants inside so you will be sure to find something delicious to eat. Plus a couple of desserts shops which made some sweet savory desserts. It's a busy place so if you don't mind walking, park in the nearby garages. Parking is expensive though 12 dollars for three hours.

Ohio Stadium

Reviewed By Randburg - Randburg, South Africa

This stadium houses around 105 000 people for American football matches at a college level. Unfortunately we visited Columbus outside of football season, but the whole town is mad about the sport and you could still sense the support for their local team. Please contact the stadium management if you wish to conduct a tour of the facility as it did not appear to be open for ad-hoc visits when I was there on a weekday.

Whetstone Park / Park of Roses

One of the largest municipal rose gardens in the U.S., this 13-acre park features more than 11,000 gorgeous rose bushes and specialized gardens for herbs, daffodils and perennials.

Reviewed By Pat R - Fishers, Indiana

Out-of-towners on a garden tour of Columbus. Mid-August is not the best time to see the Roses, but we were pleasantly surprised how many were still blooming, although many bushes were not. Free and free parking. Need to come back earlier in the year

Ohio Statehouse

Capitol building of Ohio.

Reviewed By Dmarkwind - Kansas City, Missouri

This capital is a little different than others I’ve been to. It doesn’t have an exterior dome, and it’s smaller than those of many other states. As a result, the governor’s office and other departments are housed elsewhere rather than in the statehouse. It does have a very nice manicured grounds, with underground parking beneath. Plus, there’s a museum in the basement. I had never spent time in Columbus before, and had a little bit of time after wandering around Germantown, so we decided to take the tour. Our tour guide was long-winded and a little on the dry side. I was surprised this capital didn’t have near as much wall art as others I’ve visited, and I was most impressed with the patterned rotunda floor, which is under the interior dome. It was pretty amazing to me that they figured out all the geometry for a complex alternating pattern without computers. I also liked the floor outside the statehouse gift shop where they showed all the counties of Ohio in different colors of polished stone. Glad we stopped, but if I had it to do again, I’m not sure I wouldn’t have opted for the museum rather than the tour.

Ohio State University

Reviewed By rockyjoe - Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Ohio State University (or commonly called Ohio State) was founded in 1870 and is located about 2.5 miles north of downtown Columbus on the banks of the Olentangy River. This is a very large campus with about 59,000 students.

I visited this campus with my wife and youngest daughter in mid-August and thought the campus was nice. My daughter just started school here so we were there for a few days to drop off her stuff and help her move into a new apartment. She gave us a tour when we got there and then my wife and I got a campus map and did a self-guided tour. I especially enjoyed walking by the football stadium and through the Oval in the center of the campus.

Overall I enjoyed touring this campus and thought it was pretty cool. If you are visiting Columbus I recommend that you stop by and check out this campus.
