Columbus

— 4 nights

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: Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum (in Logan), Zipline (in Rockbridge) and Jet Pack Water Adventure (in Lancaster). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Museum of the US Air Force, take a stroll through Easton Town Center, get curious at Center of Science and Industry (COSI), and deepen your understanding at Ohio State University.
