With school under way in the Central Ohio area, we’re all getting back into the swing of studying and sporting seasons that accompany each fall as we head toward winter. You can still enjoy the incredible outdoor splendor and diverse culture of our region where the weather is still warm, and there are plenty of summer fun activities and outings available to enjoy and explore. This incredible place is full of beautiful countryside, lush forests, a dedicated love of sports, and lots of fantastic museums and exhibits to dive into.
There are way more activities here than we could possibly list in one post. Some will only be available for a short time before closing, such as the Game Masters exhibit, and Ohio State Buckeyes football starting September 3, 2016, against Bowling Green State. Columbus Crew soccer is heading into the final stretch, as are the Clippers. If you’re not into being a spectator, we’ve found some other good stuff that’s simply good fun for both individual and groups, like Vertical Adventures and our own zip line tours at ZipZone.

Fifty years of innovation and creativity are chronicled in this incredible exhibit showcasing the evolution of video games.
