Columbus To-Do List #2 and #3

The second place in Columbus I decided to explore was Simply Rolled. It’s located in the Short North, which was very easy to access. There have been many times that I was just scrolling along on Facebook and came across a video of people rolling ice-cream. This fascinated me and I NEEDED to try it; therefore, I was super excited to go explore Simply Rolled. Thus far, Simply Rolled is my favorite Columbus experience and I’ve learned that Columbus is even more unique and fun than I expected it to be. The ice-cream there has an amazing taste and is in a fun form. They also have wonderful combinations on the menu. I would highly recommend trying Simply Rolled to any of my friends, family, or even a stranger. It’s the perfect place for someone with a sweet tooth.


My third Columbus To-Do list item is very different compared to the rest. I decided to mix it up a little and switch from my theme area to something else. For my third experience, I visited the Columbus Zoo! We had a zoo back home, but I’ve never been to the Columbus one before! My HES friend, Avery, and I decided to go one Sunday, since she lives around here and knows the area rather well. I love the zoo and the Columbus zoo is by far the best I’ve been to before. I would highly recommend going here for a day and seeing what it has to offer!

Columbus To-Do List #1

The theme I’ve picked for my Columbus To-Do list is the always delicious, Ice cream and Desserts. I’m extremely excited for this assignment because I really want to explore all the different places in Columbus for people with a sweet tooth like myself. My main goal for this assignment is simply to find more places to go out with friends if we’re all in the mood for something sweet. I hope to find unique dessert places in Columbus that you can’t find anywhere else.

One experience I’ve had so far is famous Jeni’s Ice Cream. Although I’ve had this before with my scholars group, I wanted to go back and take my friend along! I spoke very highly of Jeni’s to her; therefore, she was very excited to go with me. My favorite part about Jeni’s is all the different, unique flavors they have there. They are honestly one of a kind and they taste amazing! I talked to one of the server’s at Jeni’s about the different kinds they had and he told me something that I found very interesting. Jeni’s “pumpkin 5-spice” ice cream tastes more like black licorice rather than pumpkin because of the mixture of spices.

I would highly recommend Jeni’s to anyone interested in trying a new, unique flavor of ice cream. The prices are affordable, and the tastes are delightful.
