We are so lucky in Columbus to have some really amazing places that give us the constant ability to explore, learn, and play all year round. I call these The Columbus Staples. These are places that you don't even have to think about, you probably even have memberships to some or most, and I'm guessing you love them as much as we do. When you wake up and want to take your family somewhere fun but you're not sure what's going on, these are your go to spots. I love them too. I have them listed below and will occasionally write about something unique you can do there. Did you know you can take behind the scenes tours at the Columbus Zoo? Or that the Franklin Park Conservatory offers cooking classes, yoga, and preschool programs? It's amazing right. They provide so much for us, and all we have to do is take advantage of their great services. Keep an eye out for posts on how to make the most out of your experiences at each Columbus Staple.
