Greater Columbus Trip Planner
Welcome to Greater Columbus!
Miles of suburbs that extend beyond the Columbus city limits surround the Ohio capital's towering high-rise buildings. Known for much more than its high-tech companies, this metropolitan area is a bubbling tourist destination with plenty of cultural attractions, dining options and recreational opportunities. Walk or bike the city's extensive park system, or venture outside Columbus to one of several nearby state parks and nature preserves, including Madison Lake, Alum Creek and Pickerington Ponds. The area is rife with public golf courses, and each year Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin plays host to the famous Memorial Tournament. For family-friendly adventure and excitement, Wyandot Lake Adventure Park lies next door to the Columbus Zoo in Powell. Another popular attraction is the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickerington, which features four galleries housing motorcycles that range from antiques to present-day designs. Newark is the site of several large American Indian mounds and a number of cultural attractions, including the Ohio Indian Art Museum.
