  • Have a picnic.

Pack up a lunch and round up the family for this trip! Central Ohio has various parks that would be an ideal setting for an afternoon picnic. A few of our favorites are Blendon Woods Metro Park, near Wesley Woods at New Albany, Blacklick Woods Metro Park, near Wesley Ridge Retirement Community, and Highbanks Metro Park, which is just a short drive from Wesley Glen Retirement Community.

  • See fireworks.

Red, White, and BOOM is a must see in Columbus, Ohio. Sit right along the Scioto River and enjoy the beautiful display. This year, Red, White, and BOOM will be on July 3rd. Mark your calendars!

  • Visit the zoo.

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is great for all ages! If you are overwhelmed by visiting the zoo, try breaking it up into two different trips. Then, you will be able visit half one day, and the other half on another day. But, to have the best time be sure to pack sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. You’ll also want to ensure that you drink plenty of water if it’s a warm day.

  • Feed the ducks.

One of the best locations to feed ducks in Central Ohio is Creekside Park in Gahanna, Ohio. While you’re there, take a walk on the trails to explore the other wildlife. And occasionally, Creekside Park will have live music.

  • Go to a festival.

Experience Columbus provides an outstanding list of festivals and annual events in the Columbus area. There is a festival nearly every weekend in the summer! No matter what you’re interested in, from botanical gardens to blues and jazz, you’ll find a festival right around the corner.
