Columbus takes pride in its wealth of locally owned business, restaurants, shops and attractions available throughout the city. These Columbus-made products and establishments shine for their unique stories as well as their commitment to quality and collaboration, and they are helping put Columbus on the map for its creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.

Now, on the heels of the city’s wildly successful Columbus Coffee Trail and Columbus Ale Trail, Experience Columbus has launched the Made in CBUS Trail to help visitors easily experience these goods and services. The trail features 20 businesses, including top-rated distilleries, freshly cold-pressed juice shops, locally designed clothing and accessories and artfully created home goods. Similar to the aforementioned trails, visitors can pick up a Made in CBUS Trail passport at any participating stop or at one of three Experience Columbus Visitors Centers located in the Arena District, Easton and the Greater Columbus Convention Center (GCCC). After purchasing an item at any four of the twenty stops, trail goers can redeem the passport for a free Made in CBUS t-shirt at the Experience Columbus Visitors Centers in the Arena District or the GCCC.

The participating stops include:
