Columbus, Ohio: OSU, Acclaimed Museums, and One of the Country’s Best Zoos

In 2012, Columbus made Business Week’s list of America’s 50 best cities, thanks in part to the city’s best-known institution—Ohio State University. Though the school contributes a youthful air and helps drive urban progress, Ohio’s capital is much more than a college town. In the walkable downtown you’ll find trendy restaurants and bars as well as a groundbreaking interactive science museum, COSI, and the highly acclaimed Columbus Museum of Art. The Scioto River bisects the city, flowing past public parks and miles of walking and biking paths. A half-hour drive north will take you to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, one of the finest institutions of its kind, perhaps best known for its affiliation with director emeritus Jack Hanna.

Very roomy

The customer service was excellent. I had a terrible breakfast experience at a local Bob Evans. The manager of the hotel went above and beyond to make sure the rest of our stay was a wonderful.
