Experience Columbus

www.experiencecolumbus.com

As the 15th largest city in the U.S., there's a lot to see and do in Columbus. While you're in Ohio's capital city, whatever you do, don't miss out on these group musts.

COME FOR GREAT NEIGHBORHOODS
Stroll along quaint brick streets and tour private homes in one of the most storied urban neighborhoods in the U.S. - German Village. Or, find something unique to take home in the eclectic Short North Arts District, known as the "art and soul" of Columbus. Nearby, Grandview Heights is a fun way to top off the night.

COUPLE WITH SOMETHING NEW
Like the Columbus Museum of Art, with a rotating display of exhibits alongside a year-round collection that's sure to wow. Natural light pours into the new 50,000-square-foot-wing completed in 2015. And, no trip would be complete without a stop at the Museum Store or the new, Schokko Art Cafe.

CATCH A COLUMBUS FAVORITE
A backstage tour of the Ohio Theatre entertains with a light show and Mighty Morton theater organ performance. Afterward, pick a scent and pour your own hand-crafted candle at The Candle Lab.
Don't forget to dine fresh and local at one of the dozens of merchants within downtown's historic North Market. Last, but definitely not least, hit Easton Town Center, the Midwest's premier shopping destination.

STAY FOR WHAT'S BREWING
Drink craftily along The Columbus Ale Trail. After a stop and a stamp at four participating brewers, redeem your Columbus Brew Book for a pint glass (and keep the passport as a souvenir). Talk with an Experience Columbus staff member about delivering glasses to your group.

For baby boomers, travel is, well, booming. According to the AARP 2017 Travel Trends Report, 99 percent of boomers plan to take at least one leisure trip this year, with an average of five or more trips. But why do they want to travel, and where do they want to go? The report uncovered several trends.

This Wouldn't Look Better as a Lake

"Wouldn't this look better as a lake?"

I was staring out into Yosemite Valley. Half Dome and El Capitan loomed in the distance—two natural landmarks accomplishing what I thought impossible: Make the giant sequoias gathered below look small.

"What?" I turned to the man standing next to me.

"A joke," he said. "Someone once thought this valley would make a great lake."

Get Your Kicks on ... Route 50?

Route 66 sure gets a lot of hype, but have you sent groups along U.S. Route 50 lately? Probably not. In July 1986, Life magazine dubbed the Nevada portion, "The Loneliest Road in America." And yet, from rural mountain ranges to desolate deserts and miles upon miles of rich farmland, Route 50 stretches across 3,073 miles from Ocean City, Maryland to Sacramento, California. It spans 12 states and links four state capitals—offering the most complete cross-sectional journey along the United States midriff.
