Anything but stuffy
Kids and grown-ups alike will be in awe of the the fascinating views at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Built in 1895, this beautiful conservatory is located just two miles east of the city center, making it easily accessible via your Columbus rental car. The conservatory offers 88 acres of beautiful park space housing 400 species of plants. In the past, exhibitions have included Blooms and Butterflies, Holidays at the Conservatory and The Orchid Forest. If you need to get your kids motivated to scope out the plants, stop in during one of the conservatory's many children's activities, which range from crafting classes to holiday parties.
For the love of the life sciences
Voted the No. 1 science center in the country by Parents Magazine, Columbus' Center of Science and Industry is home to an incredible array of mind-boggling science exhibits. Live stage shows will enchant young kids and adults alike, as will COSI's numerous family-centered programs. Kids will learn about technology, medicine and health, the environment and more. If you and your spouse are hoping for a night on your own, older kids can "camp-in" at the museum, where they will learn new things and make new friends.
Are we still in Ohio?
Your Columbus car rental can get you to Columbus' historic German Village, but you may want to park it in lieu of walking this neighborhood's humble streets. German Village was settled by German immigrants during the 19th century, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Vintage architecture and cobblestone streets will interest adults, but kids will probably be more interested in running up and down sidewalks, stretching their legs and taking the opportunity to unleash some energy.
