Travel Tips for Columbus

Union Ralley

by deecat

While out and about on Saturday in early May, 2006, we saw quite a commotion in the form of a gathering of people, the setting up of chairs, completion of a portable platform, musical instruments, microphones, and large cameras. As we looked closer, we realized that this was a union ralley, having to do with encouraging a vote for whether or not to fund insurance for all people.

There was one woman with a microphone who was leading the group in a typical union song to encourage participation. Of course, the radio and TV coverage was setting up to record this event.

It was a great location for such a rally because of the number of tourists who come to the Statehouse for tours on Saturday mornings. (Jill and I were going there ourselves).

It seems as though each trip that Jill and I take, we run into some kind of strike or rally. It's the way of the United States, the way of the world.

It makes for interesting conversation and a break in the "fantasy" that sometimes exists as we travel...for this is the reality of living.

Great Small Plates (tapas)

by JJBlondie about The Burgundy Room

Circular booths and dim lighting give this little gem an amazing atmosphere. When paired with the great wine list (hundreds to choose from) the small plates (or tapas) can make a wonderful meal. The Prince Edward Island mussels in Thai coconut milk, the hearts of romaine salad, the tuna tartar with ginger wasabi dressing, and truffeled mac and cheese are all good choices. The Prince Edward Island mussels in Thai coconut milk are delicious and always cooked right. The portion size is nice for the price, and if its not enough, you simply order some more.

Family owned and operated

by spartan about The Mad Greek Restaurant

This used to be a Taco Bell location, but it must not have done enough business. So this family run business took over the spot and the place is packed. Serving homemade specialities, The Mad Greek is a place that you don't want to miss. I actually ate there twice, the first time I had the Souvlaki (chunks of beef cooked on a giant vertical rotisserie placed on a round pita bread with lettuce, tomato, onions, and sadziki...a cucumber-yogurt-garlic sauce), while on my second visit, I had a Fried Red Snapper Sandwich (tender fish, french bread, lettuce, tomato, onion and tartar sauce).

Santa Maria

by Tom_Fields

On the Scioto River, near City Hall, stands a replica of Columbus' flagship, the Santa Maria. This is the most authentic full-size model that exists. It was built in 1992 to commemorate the voyage of Christopher Columbus to the New World.

James W. Barney Children's Fountain

by atufft

The James W. Barney Children's Fountain is near Battelle Park, and has a number of bronze cast mythological and idealized animals worth browsing among. The collections of bronzes was better than the setting which seemed to me in need of some repair. Broken concrete and a dry fountain were cause for reconstruction at the time of my visit. Entrance to this as to any other monument along the waterfront is free.
