Let me introduce you to a destination that completely surprised me: Columbus, Ohio.
As an East Coast gal, born and raised, admittedly I haven’t spent much time in the Midwest. However, the more that I travel, the more I realize that this country is full of hidden gems that may never have been on your radar.
Columbus is an absolute delight. For starters, it is very hip and cosmopolitan: it is a full blown metropolis with posh restaurants, incredible shopping, and great nightlife. However, even though this city is incredibly sophisticated, it’s still packed with that classic Midwest charm and hospitality.
The kind folks over at Experience Columbus introduced me and a few other influencers to Ohio’s capital and hosted us on a press trip a couple of weeks ago, and we were all blown away. If you’re planning a road trip or a getaway in the near future, here’s why I think Columbus should be on your list!
