How to Spend a Weekend in Columbus: Preview

Are you visiting Columbus and wondering how to spend a whole weekend here?

Or do you live in Columbus and are bored by going to the same places?

Then you’ll want to check out this story I wrote for Experience Columbus about How to Spend a Weekend in Columbus aka A Culinary World Tour in Two Days

In Columbus, we are often overlooked and called a “flyover city.” We may not be New York City, Los Angeles, or Chicago, but we have a lot to be proud of (and we don’t have the hefty price tag of  “big city” living). In this article, I share where to eat, where to get a great cup of coffee, and the neighborhoods to stroll through.

The weekend begins at Le Meridien The Joseph in the Short North and will end in German Village. You’ll have to click here to read all the places we stop in between!
