Experience Columbus

Columbus is a city built on bold ideas and fueled by relentless optimism. As a community, we tend to dream big. We let nothing stop us from turning today's dreams into better tomorrows. We’re excited to reveal to a wider audience all that’s possible when you Live Forward by sharing the thrilling opportunities available to all types of travelers in Columbus.

The safety of visitors to Columbus is the city’s highest priority. The spread of the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus has increased significantly over the past few weeks, and Experience Columbus advises all visitors and residents to follow CDC and Columbus Public Health guidelines. Mayor Andrew J. Ginther signed an executive order on Friday, Sept. 10 declaring a State of Emergency in the City of Columbus and requiring that face masks be worn by individuals age 6 and older while in indoor spaces accessible to the public, regardless of vaccination status. Experience Columbus and partner businesses continue to expand adoption of the Live Forward Pledge, committed to keeping visitors safe. See what attractions are open and welcoming visitors and stay engaged with us through our digital platforms.
