Columbus is all about number 1s. Confused? How about we say it has the number 1 zoo? Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is one of the most popular attractions in the city, and when you see the faces of the adorable animals, you’ll see why!
How about number 1 science center? COSI (Centre of Science & Industry) is where kids can get an incredible hands-on experience with all things science (and LEGO!).
And how about possibly the number 1 historical experience to happen to the USA? Kids will love the historical Santa Maria, ship of Christopher Columbus who of course, discovered a certain country….
In summer kids will love the water parks like Fort Rapids Indoor Waterpark (did we just say summer? It’s indoors - head on down there in winter!), and if it’s greenery you want, there are plenty of spaces to just enjoy with the family, like Topiary Gardens.
There are so many fun things to do in Columbus with the kids!
