My Columbus Favorites

Columbus has so many wonderful things to offer! My husband and I spent four years living in Columbus, before moving to the Cincinnati area in May 2014. This blog chronicled our last year in the Capital City with my reviews of local restaurants, museums, festivals and parks. In the past four years we have enjoyed many delicious meals, long hikes and entertainment and I wanted to share with you some of our favorites.
