While many think of Columbus as just another small Midwestern locale, the destination is actually a vibrant city that combines Appalachian, Bible Belt and Rust Belt cultures. As Ohio's largest city and capital, it can be an expensive place to vacation, especially if you're bringing the whole family.

Leave your Columbus car rental behind and explore Topiary Park by foot. This historic gem is open to the public and spans seven acres of lush land. It also has a unique history - while the park was only dedicated back in 1992, the location of the topiary trees that give the site its name was once known as the Old Deaf School Park and dates back to the 1800s. Today, it's one of the city's most famous landscapes, best known for the three-dimensional sculpture that recreates "A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grande Jatte," a painting by famed French post-impressionist George Seurat.
Drive a Columbus car rental along Jefferson Avenue until you reach the historic Thurber House. Admission is free on weekdays, as are self-guided tours. The home was once the residence of American author James Thurber, best known for his cartoons and stories featured in The New Yorker. You can perseus Thurber's works in the archival museum, peruse the sculpture garden outdoors and take part in events at this renowned literary center.
