Columbus is the U.S.’ 15th largest city, hosting an impressive creative community. After all, the city is also quite young, making it a perfect place to visit with family. Family-friendly activities in the city range from spectating vibrant lights at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, visiting Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and catching a show at the Wexner Center for the Arts. Although the city’s outdoors has much to offer, families should visit venues that merge nature with practicality. Magic Mountain is a good one and has bumper boats and go-carts, and families can go zip lining in The Wilds. Don’t worry about accommodation; these unique rentals put you in the center of open nature. They have all the amenities necessary for a fun camping experience—your fun camping experience.
