The Discovery City

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Columbus: Stonewall Cemetery (in Lancaster), Dayton (2nd Street Market, National Museum of the US Air Force, &more) and Zipline (in Rockbridge). The adventure continues: try your luck at JACK Cincinnati Casino, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, admire the natural beauty at Inniswood Metro Gardens, and wander the streets of Easton Town Center.
