Take That Foto's booths are like miniature photography studios. Professional lighting ensures bright, even shots as the photo booth's 18 megapixel Canon DSLR camera captures up to 10 smiling faces at once. Goofy hats and other props accent the shots, which print out on individual photo strips in only 10 seconds, or half the time it takes a photographer to explain the correct pronunciation of "cheese."

"This is the coolest thing I've ever seen!" Whenever proprietor Laura Knipfer hears kids say things like this about Sky Zone Columbus, it makes her heart soar. It’s the same feeling she remembers having the first time she visited a Sky Zone location. The moment happened when she and her family gave another location of the indoor trampoline park a try while on vacation in St. Louis. That afternoon, each person emerged drenched in sweat and beaming with smiles. On the heels of those enjoyable moments, she knew she had to open her own location near home, an endeavor that has also earned accolades from Columbus Parent magazine. Both flat and angled trampolines cover approximately 10,000 square feet of the cavernous space, all catapulting kids and grownups under the watchful eye of safety monitors. In the main arena, jumpers freestyle on 33 trampolines, doing flips, belly flops, or directing traffic. A smaller court hosts players launching soft spheres at each other during dodge-ball games and a pit of foam cushions cannonball dives. Non-jumpers can watch the action safely from platforms at the entrance to the arena or benches scattered throughout the facility. A concession stand restores nutrients spent jumping with pizza by the slice from Jet's, warm pretzels, and Clif bars, which can also be burned off in trampoline fitness classes and birthday parties at the facility.

The headquarters of the nonprofit Ohio Historical Society, the Ohio Historical Center abounds with exhibits and activities that showcase the state's diverse social, natural, and archeological history. Built in 1970, the museum's towering Brutalist edifice is a piece of history itself, lauded as "bold" and "imaginative” by the American Institute of Architects. Inside, a 15,000-square-foot gallery explores pivotal moments in the Buckeye State’s past, examining everything from Ohio’s role in the Civil War to Boomer Esiason’s stint as Secretary of State. A natural-history exhibit regales guests with interactive displays of animals, plants, and geography. In addition to its permanent exhibits, the center hosts an ever-changing selection of featured exhibits and special events.
Outside the museum sits Ohio Village, a re-creation of a Civil War–era town. Costumed villagers bustle about the square, performing chores and activities of the era, such as churning butter and checking wooden PalmPilots. The town's 15 buildings showcase the height of 19th-century architecture and include a Gothic-revival church, a large town hall, and an open market. The village is also the home of the renowned Ohio Village Muffins, who regularly compete in games of baseball played by 19th-century rules.
