Columbus is actually a relatively nice city. There are a lot of restaurants and stores…it may be worth renting a hotel for a weekend if you guys are looking to take mini trips. Other than that, without knowing exactly where you’ll be located, I can’t be much help. Ohio isn’t too bad, there are vinyards to visit, hall of fames, plenty of restaurants….I’m sure you will find things to do 🙂

45 minutes which direction?  Makes a big difference as to what you can easily get to.

Also – easy trips are to Indy, Chicago isn’t that far, Pittsburgh, none of them are NYC and I don’t know where you live now but those are options for a weekend if you can’t find easy flights to NYC (it’s about a 9 hour drive from C’bus).

Looks like it’s just NW of C’bus.  There’s the Wright Brother’s museum in Dayton, a pretty nice Aquarium in Newport (over the river from Cincy), the zoos in C’bus and Cincy, as PP said, Amish country, the headquarters for Longaberger isn’t that far if that’s your thing.

 

In April there should be baseball in Cincy or Cleveland and there’s the AAA team in Columbus, or even Hockey and Soccer.

I actually lived in Marysville for a little under a year and am from southern Ohio. Columbus has tons to do, but you will also have a relatively easy time hitting the other cities aswell such as Dayton/Cinci with a drive. You could visit the Wright Patterson Air Base Museum, Columbus has fantastic food, zoo, museums aswell. Try to hit up oldtown German Village in Columbus for sight seeing because it is really something different and special about the city and there are some wonderful snack-grabbing souvenir shops in the heart of it. I also second the Amish country sight seeing aswell, as they too have many of their own shops and farm sights. I miss Ohio quite a bit and I really believe that it offers so much to do…one minute you are in the middle of a field and NOTHING is around, the next you are in a bustling city atmosphere. GL and have fun!

I’d drive down to Cincinnati for a baseball game. Their new(ish) stadium is pretty nice. The Cincinnati Zoo is really nice. The US Air Force Museum in Dayton is very large and is, I believe, the national Air Force museum. There’s a lot for a history buff to look at & read. 

The Appalachian foothills are to the south and east of Columbus if you like hiking. Lots of state parks with cabins. There are also several old Native American sites, such as the Great Serpent Mound. I haven’t been since I was a kid, but I used to love that type of stuff.

Columbus is great. There are tons of really cool resteraunts to go to. I reccomend checking out the Short North for great local art and music. The zoos and aquariums in Ohio are fantastic, the Franklin Park Conservatory (where one of the recent Bees got married) is gorgeous and a fun place to visit.

If you want to go somewhere a little bigger, Chicago is not that far away, my SO and I take weekend trips there sometimes.

@eloping:  Hope you’re enjoying/enjoyed my hometown (grew up in Marysville!) I know it’s not much, but it’s a sweet little town.
