My Favorite Things in Columbus When It’s Cold Outside

  1. Head over to German Village, grab a cup of coffee at Stauf’s, and then head next door to get lost in one of The Book Loft‘s thirty-two rooms and curl up with a good book!
  2. Try something artsy with Studio 614!  They offer a variety of canvas and glassware painting classes.  Food and beverages are definitely a plus. 🙂
  3. Be productive at The Roosevelt Coffeehouse!  Their lattes and iced coffees are the bomb, and the best part is that they support organizations that fight for clean water and against hunger and human trafficking.
  4. Check out the art studios and events at 400 West Rich Street in Franklinton.  After wandering through the old warehouse, try the amazing lamb burger at Strongwater Food and Spirits or grab a drink at the Land-Grant Brewing Company next door.
  5. If you’re obsessed with greenery like me, check out the Franklin Park Conservatory.  Inside their huge greenhouses, plants are flourishing no matter the time of the year!
  6. Go ice-skating!  There are several skating rinks and one of the most popular is the OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rinks.
  7. Pour your own candle at The Candle Lab! You can create your own perfect scent.
  8. Take advantage of all the happy hour deals in Short North!  One of my favorite Columbus bloggers, Kasual Life, lists some of my go-to restaurants with the best happy hours!
  9. Go skiing, snowboarding, or tubing at Mad River Mountain! It’s only an hour away, and on Fridays, they have 3-hour Tubing Tickets for just $20 with a College ID!
  10. And last but not least, Gallery Hop of course!  Gallery Hop is the first Saturday of every month in the Short North from 4pm-10pm.  Check out all the galleries, shops, restaurants, and bars!

Remember to take some time for yourselves this winter to have fun!
