Most summers Karl and I take a couples vacation to a music festival. These are long weekends where we get to enjoy our shared passion of music and have an extended Date Night. After many years going to Bonnaroo, we switched to the Forecastle Music Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. A smaller fest, it’s also one where we stay in a hotel instead of tent and have the ability to explore a cool city and enjoy its great restaurants and bars between performances. Last summer we stayed home recovering from my arm injury and Karl’s stress fracture in his foot. This year we decided we wanted a truly relaxing vacation and decided to forgo a music festival for a few in-town concerts and a long weekend as a couple to a new-to-us city.
My coworker went to college in Columbus, Ohio and for the past few years we’ve worked together I’ve heard how awesome of a city it is and I MUST visit it. Did you know Columbus is the 15th largest city in the United States? Just a few hours away, it’s a perfect weekend getaway locale. She and I were chatting about Columbus a couple months ago and I went back to my desk to see an email asking if I’d like to visit Columbus this summer and check out the city’s culinary scene. I was so excited, I called Karl right away and we immediately started planning out our getaway!
We’ll be going in August and I’ll be writing a post that month recapping the entire weekend. Also be sure to follow me on Instagram where I’ll be capturing photos of what we see, what we do, and especially where we dine. If you’re from or have visited Columbus I’d love to hear your recommendations! What should we see, where should we stay, and where should we dine? Thanks in advance!
