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.

There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Easton Town Center, take in nature's colorful creations at Kelton House Museum & Garden, see the interesting displays at The Museum of Catholic Art and History, and take a spin around town with Pedal Wagon Columbus.
