Lunch: A variety of dining options awaits such as Brio Tuscan Grille, Northstar Cafe, Ocean Club or Cooper’s Hawk Winery.
Afternoon: The Columbus Museum of Art welcomes you on a guided, customized tour. Couple the excursion with a special workshop that’ll have everyone taking home a handmade work of art.
Evening: Spend the afternoon in Old Worthington for the Wax, Wicks and Wine Experience. Pick from dozens of scents and, with help from the experts, hand pour a Candle Lab candle. Then, step next door to House Wine. The candle needs an hour to set, just enough time to sample wine or craft beer. Afterward, dine at the revered, historic Worthington Inn.
Morning: Get close to exotic plant life at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. If you’d like, couple your visit with a workshop in gardening, cooking, art or wellness.
Lunch: Sweet and savory smells abound at the North Market, home to 35 merchants and farmers sharing cuisine from around the globe. Nibble your way around this historic Columbus institution.

Evening: Relax in the “art and soul” of Columbus – the Short North Arts District. Start with dinner of American specialties at Hubbard Grille. Afterward, the district’s local artisans will delight with galleries and boutiques filled with one-of-a-kind finds and special treasures. Join us the first Saturday of each month to take part in Gallery Hop, an extra special evening of entertainment and eclectic personalities.
Morning: Start the day with brunch at Milestone 229. April to October, consider dining on the expansive patio to take in the sights of the Scioto Mile Fountain, named one of the world’s 15 most spectacular fountains by CNN. Or, from indoors, get a scenic view of the downtown skyline.
