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.
National Museum of the US Air Force and Frank Lloyd Wright's Westcott House will appeal to museum buffs. Visit Harding Presidential Sites and Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Columbus: Carillon Historical Park (in Dayton), Kings Island (in Mason) and Columbus Zoo and Aquarium (in Powell). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Easton Town Center, take a stroll through Short North Arts District, make a trip to Rockhouse, and contemplate the long history of Lowe Volk Nature Center.

To see traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Columbus trip planner.

In August, daytime highs in Columbus are 84°F, while nighttime lows are 64°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
