Columbus, Ohio, is committed to reopening safely amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring the health of all groups is top priority for future visits.
Businesses in Columbus have signed the Live Forward Pledge and numerous venues and attractions are working toward additional third-party validation through the GBAC STAR accreditation for superior cleaning practices—including group-favorite Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens offers world-class horticulture, art, and nature-based exhibitions. Groups could explore the historic 1895 John F. Wolfe Palm House, walk among plants from around the world, release a tropical butterfly in the Pacific Islands Water Gardens, and view the world's largest private collection of Chihuly glass artwork in a botanical garden—which just announced the art will be on permanent view at the Conservatory.
Visit in the fall for Harvest Blooms, the otherworldly autumn landscape of hundreds upon hundreds of pumpkins, heirloom gourds and colorful mums. Groups could also visit during the holidays for Conservatory Aglow, a winter wonderland decked with festive light displays, poinsettias, interactive art installations, gingerbread houses and a model railway.
As a community, we tend to dream big to make the best experiences for groups visiting our city. Right now, in the midst of a global crisis when life seems to be put on hold, it's more important than ever to look forward. We want to show the world all that's possible when you "Live Forward."
No matter when you and your group can travel again, Columbus is waiting for you.
