An adventurous day out seeing some of the best Columbus has to offer could be just what the doctor ordered! So grab your sunscreen, a large brimmed hat and a hearty companion to join you to experience Columbus. During the month of October, our central Ohio city will be bustling with fun for all ages.
If you need someone to accompany you, all of our Columbus Home Care Assistance caregivers make for fun and reliable partners for the day. Not sure where to start your Columbus adventure? Here are some of the top Columbus attractions that are great for seniors:
- Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is an 88-acre piece of land featuring a beautiful winding path (which is wheelchair accessible) that takes guests through lush gardens and outdoor artwork, an ideal way for seniors to get a bit of exercise while enjoying stunning surroundings. If the weather isn’t pleasant, tour the wonderful indoor gardens for a small fee.
- The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium offers seniors a discounted admission of $9.99, great for a fun and affordable day out. Spend a day among butterflies and rhinos. Walk around the park at your own pace and take breaks at the many exhibits and attractions. The zoo also has wheelchairs that are available to rent on a first-come first-serve basis.
- The Wexner Center for the Arts is perfect for seniors who love art. The gallery showcases pieces that date as far back as the 1950s, and is currently featuring over 40 various artists whose work highlights classic blues tradition. A trip to the Wexner Center is sure to provide a day full of engaging and mentally stimulating activities.
