Whatever reason you have for heading to “The Crossroads of Ohio,” Travelocity will connect you with vacations in Columbus that won’t cost you a fortune.

Things to Do

Buying a cheap vacation in Columbus means you’ve got plenty of money to spend on other, more enticing adventures. Rent a kayak or canoe and paddle down the softly rolling waters of the Scioto, pausing for a photo op every now and then. Next, stop by German Village, located right near the downtown area, and immerse yourself in another world. This fully inhabited neighborhood is not a park or a historic reserve; rather, it’s just home to beautiful 19th-century architecture and plenty of shops for you to purchase keepsakes and souvenirs of your trip. Following this, pay a visit to the Ohio Theatre, a stunning, gilded relic of the golden age of movie palaces. It’s now home to a variety of live performances, and your inner child might well be thrilled just to wander its shining halls and gape up at its glowing ceiling. Is this a theatre, or some mystical throne room for an emperor?

But before you weigh yourself down in shopping bags and dramatic performances, ready your camera and your heart and take yourself to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Make friends with polar bears, African Gray parrots, and bison, among many other types of creatures, and explore beautifully landscaped habitats. You’ll soon see why the zoo is listed as #1 in so many publications!
