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.
Get out of town with these interesting Columbus side-trips: Portsmouth Floodwall Mural (in Portsmouth), Kennedy Museum of Art (in Athens) and Bainbridge Dental Museum (in Bainbridge - Ross County). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Museum of the US Air Force, browse the eclectic array of goods at Jungle Jim's International Market, take a stroll through Easton Town Center, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
