Tips from locals
A botanical landmark just two miles east of downtown Columbus, Franklin Park Conservatory and botanical gardens features exotic plant collections, seasonal are and nature-based exhibitions. It is open daily and an admission fee is charged
Filled with an array of exotics plants, trees and flowers. They also have a stunning butterfly conservatory filled with hundreds of live butterflies. Their orchid and bonsai collection is definitely worth a visit when in season.
Love going here in the colder months to experience the warm greenhouses. Their outdoor children's garden is a wonderful spot for kids to experience a unique play environment.

“The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is one of the top ranked zoo's in the United States. There is no shortage of exhibits and beautiful animals as what you would expect being promoted back Jack Hanna. If you are here during the wintertime you will have the pleasure of experiencing their Wildlights theme. ”

“Down in the Short North is great local shopping and more local restaurants and bars. This is a quick ride share away, as parking has become more scarce we recommend Lyft or UBER to get around in the Short North.”
