Experiential Trails of Columbus

One of the best ways to explore the city is by traversing any of our three experiential trails - each unique and fun in their own ways. Experience Columbus' thriving coffee culture on the Columbus Coffee Trail, check out the city's booming craft beer scene on the Columbus Ale Trail and visit the more than 20 local makers on the Made in Cbus trail. All of these trails are supported by Experience Columbus. Pick up trail cards for any trail in an Experience Columbus Visitor Center or a participating shop and start exploring your way through the city for fun prizes along the way.

Columbus Coffee Trail

It's more than just good coffee. Quality craftsmanship and commitment to education are brewing behind every cup. Explore the Columbus coffee scene by visiting these stand-out shops, and taste what happens when quality and collaboration come first. Pick up a Columbus Coffee Trail card at any trail location or an Experience Columbus Visitor Center and get your card stamped along the way. After four stops, you earn a free Columbus coffee experience t-shirt and after you complete the trail, you'll receive a free travel mug. View the participating coffee shops.

Columbus Ale Trail

With more than 50 unique craft breweries in the region, Columbus’ beer scene is an adventure waiting for you to explore. Pick up your FREE copy of the Columbus Ale Trail Volume 6 books at any participating Central Ohio brewery. Present your Columbus Ale Trail book at any participating brewery after making a purchase to receive a stamp. Once you have collected four stamps, you’ll earn a Columbus Ale Trail embroidered patch. Visit every brewery on the Columbus Ale Trail to unlock a limited edition art print! View the participating breweries.

Made in Cbus Trail

Columbus takes pride in the wealth of locally owned businesses, restaurants, shops and attractions all across the city. Enjoy our top-rated distilleries, locally designed clothing and accessories and artfully created homegoods at this selection of standout shops around Columbus. Pick up a Made in Cbus Trail card at any participating shop or Experience Columbus Visitor Center, purchase something at any four local maker shops and earn a free Made in Cbus tote bag to commemorate your visit.
