Visiting Columbus

The Ohio State University is a world renowned educational institution located in the heart of Ohio—Columbus. Ohio’s capital city offers many places of interest, including the Center of Science and Industry on the west bank of the Scioto River, the Santa Maria replica docked on the downtown riverfront, the Columbus Museum of Art and Franklin Park Conservatory found less than two miles from downtown, and the Columbus Zoo, where you may run into Jack Hanna.

German Village—the nation’s largest privately restored historic neighborhood—is a must see. And downtown’s northern edge is home to Short North, where you’ll find some of the best art galleries, specialty shops, pubs and coffee houses that Columbus has to offer. Take all this and add in the numerous dining and shopping opportunities, and you’ll see why Columbus makes a perfect Workshop destination.
