  • We love the many festivals and concerts that our city offers, and one of our favorite venues is Scioto Mile. It's beautiful, and the layout is always on point. They also get great acts. Love it here!!  more »
  • Loves the fountains & perfect for letting the kids run around (in swimsuits) on a hot day! Beautiful view of the river & nice clean trail along for exercise!! Park is not great...be prepared to pay! B...  more »
  • For an Ohio city, it was actually quite impressive. We felt safe as we walked through the streets, visited the park, and parked our car at a toll meter. My husband and I went in the evening long after...  more »

  • Just stopped through Columbus, specifically looking for this park, and so glad that we did (although we need to stay longer next time, not just eat and walk!). The walk along the river is beautiful, with swinging benches, checkers/chess tables, and fountains along the upper ridge of the park so you can look at the river. The main fountains, was full of kids playing (and some adults too). We didn't get to see the fountains sync'ed with music, which they do at 12PM, 6PM, and 8PM, but it looked so fun for kids of any age to play in the fountains. Great walk, scenery, I hope that residents enjoy it as much as the tourists!
  • A nice place to go at night to just clear your head. Good for dates with loved one or family time. Great anytime of day for photos. Down side is to much construction taking it away slowly but surely.
  • I love the path down here and all the updates they made a few years ago when they redid everything. The swings are comfy and offer a spectacular view, the statues are all very interesting and beautiful, and it's overall a very pleasant place to spend an evening
  • This is a must go place! River walkways. Large lawns. Swinging benches. Plenty of benches and walking paths. Bike trails. Great views. Fountains and flowers. We loved it!
  • Beautiful design and landscaping! šŸ‘ It was all torn up the last time I was here to visit. To see the finish result put a huge smile on my face. Hopefully, the city will approve a few carts or kiosks that sell bottled water and other beverages with snacks as you walk along the riverside. Because it was very hot and we had to end our walk due to thirst. Smh

Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near theĀ Interstate exits.
