Summer is the perfect time to plan a roadtrip and create memories with your family. Whether it’s a daytrip or a weekend getaway, COSI in Columbus is a great destination for families.
Our family LOVES to visit COSI (Center of Science and Industry) in Columbus, Ohio. There is always something new to do and explore there.
When I visit a city, I seek out locations and experiences that are unique, that I can’t replicate anywhere else. I discovered that Columbus, Ohio has a lot to offer when it comes to connecting with nature through outdoor adventure. You can choose your own outdoor adventure in an urban setting, a scenic park, or the woods.
So did I find anything unique, that I couldn’t replicate anywhere else, in Columbus? YES, and there is a good chance that you will want to add these adventures to your list too!
Columbus, Ohio offers a lot for visitors to see and do. I’m sharing some of my favorite stops in Columbus that I would recommend checking out.
During a trip to Columbus, we decided to leave a few hours of our fate in the hands of our smartphones. We researched a place to eat and a few unique attractions to see before arriving at our destination of COSI.
My boys have enjoyed attending LEGO events over the past few years. They can easily spend hours at the events each year because there is so much to do and there are so many opportunities for them to create. As a parent, I enjoy watching my boys explore endless options to tap into their creative side….it’s also fun for me to join them.

“Since we began the LEGO KidsFest six years ago, we have been flooded with requests to visit more cities and regions across the country, but they don’t all have the space to host a KidsFest,” said Vince Rubino, senior events manager at LEGO Systems, Inc. “The LEGO Creativity Tour leverages some of the best of the LEGO KidsFest experience in a more flexible format to enable us to visit with even more families with an interactive, hands-on LEGO celebration.”
*Tickets for the LEGO Creativity Tour are $19 (plus tax and service fees).
Children under 2 are FREE.
I take pride in knowing about little gems and attractions. That’s why I was floored to learn that I was unaware of a whole entire city that was only 1.5 hours away from me that is known for modern architecture.
When you visit Columbus you need to make sure that a visit to Jeni’s is on your list. Over the summer I was in Columbus for a work trip and Jeni’s was our first stop. I had heard good things about Jeni’s for a while and was curious about why there was so much buzz about their ice cream.
I love discovering unexpected places during my travels. During a visit to Columbus, my coworker and I decided to walk around the German Village neighborhood after a visit to The Thurman Cafe. I like to have a few places to visit ahead of time but I also love doing a little on site research to find hidden gems.
