Westerville Golf Center's lush driving range coddles golfers with first-rate facilities that landed it on Golf Range Magazine's 2011 Top 100 Ranges list. With the Birdie Frequent Hitter card in tow, golfers can whack, juggle, and comically trip over $36 worth of driving range balls while traversing 80 verdant grass slug-stations. A fleet of 40 covered tees, heated in winter, shelter stick swingers from summer sun and unseasonable chills, and loaner clubs are on hand for those still slicing the air with old mannequin legs. Ideal for sharing with a close friend or one of the staff's PGA instructors, orbs come in small ($5/40 balls), large ($7.50/75 balls), and jumbo ($13/175 balls) buckets.
Through pulsing music, a booming voice announces the score. The dim light flickers and the vest around your torso flashes your stats. Your heart thunders like the steps of a river-dancing giant as you scamper up two levels to four soaring platforms, blasting beams toward opponents with your DarkLight phaser along the way.

The hilltop views from Cincinnati's art-influenced Mount Adams neighborhood reveals an impressive skyline nestled against the Ohio River, an organic confluence of urban achievement and natural beauty. For a scenic metropolitan experience, the 126-year-old Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden encompasses more than 65 acres with its impressive collection of flora and fauna.

The friendly staff at Putt N Play Family Fun Center welcomes exhilaration enthusiasts of all ages to its cheerful expanse of games and attractions. Groups revel in the spirit of competition while bouncing golf balls off the brick boundaries and shrunken boulders of the 18-hole miniature-golf course. Afterward, the batting cage offers a place to practice chopping at a moving target, whereas air hockey provides players with the chance to practice distracting facial-distortion techniques. Once the day's excitement has left the group tired and hungry, a concession stand refuels parties with pizza, hot dogs, and soda.
Founded more than 30 years ago to foster cultural pride in the Italian American heritage, the Columbus Italian Festival still hews to its original trifecta of values: faith, family and friends. Held at the St. John The Baptist Italian Catholic Church, the festival has swelled from its inaugural crowd of 10,000 to more than 35,000. The festivities, which go on for three days, honor Columbus’s vibrant Italian community with live music, a smorgasbord of Italian cuisine, a cultural parade, and a film festival featuring the work of famous Italian directors, actors, or boom-mike operators.
