Columbus is hopping on the day of a home Buckeyes Football game. But the action isn't all in the Horseshoe. If you're not a football fan, you're going to find a lot to love in the city on those days - all with a lighter crowd than normal! Here are some ideas for you to get out and experience the city in the coming weeks.

In the Brewery District, Shadowbox Live offers a variety of shows and experiences that will surely entertain you. Beginning November 5, Gallery of Echoes will return to the stage with art coming to life in front of your very own eyes through a variety of mediums. The Columbus Dispatch billed the show as “an intriguing multimedia fantasia.” We currently have a travel package available for Gallery of Echoes that's a great value! The details are here.

In the spirit of the Halloween this week, I have to mention Scary Plants at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Enjoy a stroll through the conservatory while discovering the unique and even dangerous species on display.
