Set sail for a new world of vacation brilliance

Get ready to make a momentous discovery with your Columbus vacation rental. Named for the legendary Italian globetrotter, Columbus is a whip-smart, modern city with the buzz of a boomtown about it. It's got museums, sports, and music venues, theaters, galleries, and gardens, and with Columbus, the daytime explorations are only half the fun. With a food scene so international that you can sample more cuisines in a week than Columbus himself clocked up in a lifetime, plus more than its fair share of breweries, distilleries, and coffee roasters, your vacation voyage of discovery in Columbus is never-ending.

Things to do

Curves? You won't find any of those round here

The Columbus Museum of Art is the place to see paintings that make everything look square. It's got a collection that punches with the best of them, particularly when it comes to 20th-century art and cubism. If you're more about lab coats and goggles than overalls and berets, COSI Columbus is an innovative museum for scientists young and old. And for a peer into the past, travel back in time to the Ohio History Center, complete with its own Civil War-era village. Feet getting tired by now? Slow it down with a visit to the botanical gardens at the Franklin Park Conservatory.

Activities

Columbus doesn't give the other vacations a sporting chance

It's a good job Christopher Columbus himself never discovered the delights of a Columbus vacation rental, otherwise that might have been the end of his explorations. Whatever your vacation preferences, you won't have to travel far to find them. Like sports? Hockey and soccer are the big ones here, with a massive university sports scene covering pretty much everything else (especially football). More about the culture than the sports grounds? Try classical music, ballet, jazz, and theater, including open-air Shakespeare every summer. And that's before you get onto the opportunities for nightlife, dining, and shopping.

Weather

With a Columbus vacation rental, the wind's in your sails

As all seasoned travelers know, a big part of a successful voyage is getting the right weather. Fortunately, with a Columbus vacation rental, the odds are stacked in your favor. Summers round here are hot, and while it can get a bit humid at times, it's rare that it gets stifling. You'll come across the occasional thunderstorm, so pack the oilskins, just in case. Winter sailors will be pleased to hear that, while it can get pretty cold here, Columbus doesn't get nearly as much snow as other nearby cities, so you can leave the huskies and sleds back home.

Natural features

No need to set foot on dry land in Columbus

As befits a city named for a sailor, there's a lot of water in Columbus. It's set where the Scioto and Olentangy rivers meet, and there are a decent number of smaller blue tendrils winding their way through the city too. Columbus is the state capital and largest city in Ohio, but it's also the county seat of Franklin county. It's a reasonably flat, urban part of the world, but it's uncommonly well stocked with metropolitan parks and lakes. A local favorite is Big Darby Creek, while birdwatchers flock to the Whittier Peninsula Park.
