So you think you’ve done all there is to do in Columbus? We beg to differ.

This list of things to do in Columbus is not for the faint of heart. Yes, we included several quintessential summer activities like the Memorial Tournament and the Ohio State Fair, but those are just the tip of the iceberg if you want to cross every item off this list.

May the odds be ever in your favor (and have fun)!

  • Catch the historic Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club June 6th – 9th
  • Check out the brand-new, state-of-the-art Canopy Walk at Blacklick Woods Metro Park in Reynoldsburg, complete with suspended cargo nets, fire poles, and a cargo net bridge for thrill seekers
  • Go kayaking at one of Central Ohio’s pristine lakes or rivers
