Ideal for groups of 25 or less

Lunch | A variety of dining options await such as Brio Tuscan Grille, Northstar Cafe, Ocean Club or Cooper’s Hawk Winery.

Afternoon | The Columbus Museum of Art welcomes you on a guided, customized tour. Pair it with a special workshop that’ll have everyone taking home a handmade work of art.

Evening | Spend the afternoon in Old Worthington for the Wax, Wicks and Wine Experience. Pick from dozens of scents and, with help from the experts, hand-pour a Candle Lab candle. Then, step next door to House Wine. The candle needs an hour to set, just enough time to sample wine or craft beer! Afterward, dine at the revered, historic Worthington Inn.
