The capital of the State of Ohio, Columbus has been known as the "gay mecca of the Midwest". The ethnic food scene in Columbus is amazing due to the immigrant population with the second-largest Somali population in the country. A football crazy town, it is not advisable to attempt driving on the roads before or after a home game when the roads are totally congested with smoke belching vehicles. But the benefit for those that are not into footie and want to go exploring is that you can have the town to yourself, as it is a ghost town during a match. This is the town that companies test all their crazy ideas or products on, obviously confusing the inhabitants with lab rats and tow trucks are swooping vultures looking for a quick buck if you are illegally parked.
You should take a leisurely meander around the Columbus Park of Roses where you will find masses and masses of stunning roses on display, just don't try picking a bunch. The Glen Echo Ravine is the spot for a bit of bird watching of the "twitter" variety whilst the Olentangy Trail (aka Old Tangy) is the perfect track for pedaling a bike along or exercising the legs. A more serious alternative for leg pumping is to take a hike at the Blake Avenue turnoff from the Old Tangy, where you can even find a good fishing spot or two. The gorgeous and historical German Village neighborhood is good to wonder around in, as is The Wexner Center for the Arts at the Ohio State University campus.
Remember you are in "tailgating" perfection territory when a game is on. Random amounts of charred meat, copious amounts of alcohol and the odd game of corn hole - a game whereby you throw bags of corn at a raised platform with a hole in the end - are riotous affairs only for the under 30s.
