More than just one of the nation's top business centers, Columbus is a mixture of many different parts of America, situated at the spot where the so-called "Bible Belt" meets the varied cultures of the Great Plains and Appalachia.
Attractions like Kings Island and Newport Aquarium make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Columbus' surroundings by going to Freedom Grove (in Urbana), Miami Valley Gaming (in Lebanon) and Dayton (2nd Street Market, National Museum of the US Air Force, &more). There's lots more to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, wander the streets of Easton Town Center, try your luck at JACK Cincinnati Casino, and see the interesting displays at Wagner-Hagans Auto Museum.
