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.
