Family Fun in Columbus

This post is sponsored by Experience Columbus, opinions are my own.

Most of you probably know that I live in Ohio, but what you may not know is that I live about an hour from our state capital—Columbus!


I’m actually really excited this week because we’re gearing up for a trip to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium! It will be my daughter’s first trip to the zoo and I’m really looking forward to experiencing all the wonder through new eyes.

Both of the kids love animals, so I know we’re going to have a blast. While I think we’re probably going to spend the whole day at the zoo, Zoombezi Bay Waterpark and its new Baboon Lagoon area are on site as well and this makes a wonderful day trip for families.

I love that our family can take a short trip into Columbus to have new experiences and get that big-city feeling without having to go far from home. Columbus is such a wonderful place to spend a long weekend for families like ours, but it’s also a wonderful place to visit if you’re looking for a longer stay in a truly colorful, beautiful and unique city.

I’ll also be sharing some of my favorite places to dine in Columbus, my favorite downtown attractions and some more hot spots for families and kids.
