2) Admire cosy cottages in Victorian Village in Columbus

There are no touristic excesses in Victorian Village in Columbus, only the incredible beauty of cottages and other buildings in the Victorian style. Here you will see historical mansions preserved here. The wealthiest citizens lived here in the 19th and 20th centuries. And make sure to visit Sader Park with its greenery.

3) Hand out like a local in Columbus at ShadowboxLive

Ask every third citizen of Columbus where they are going to spend the evening, and you will probably hear, “At ShadowboxLive”. It is an unusual place where actors take on multiple roles, including performing dance numbers on stage and serving you food and drink in between acts. The performances are impressive but slightly raunchy. Better leave kids at home.
