Named one of the best cities in America to raise a family, Columbus, Ohio, is full of grown-up fun as well. Filled with top-rated restaurants, an eclectic mix of historic buildings and a growing nightlife scene, you're sure to find an attraction to suit your mood or needs while visiting this Midwestern gem. What are you waiting for? The city of 780,000 residents is ready to welcome you to their hometown, so jump in your Columbus rental car and dive right in.

Music to your ears
Tired of your hometown music venues? You've come to the right city. Take your Columbus car rental to one of the city's many concert halls, music clubs and audio holes in the wall, so to speak, to get a taste of Columbus' ever-changing soundtrack. The Columbus Jazz Orchestra has been a favorite since its inception in 1973, and has hosted some of the world's best jazz musicians - including Count Basie and Duke Ellington - throughout its nearly 40-year history. If you'd prefer singing to brass, head to the Ohio Theater, a landmark theater whose gold embossed walls and designs easily demonstrate its rich history. As for acoustics - you'd have a hard time finding any that are better!

Beers and bratwurst?
Got a penchant for pretzels? A soft spot for spargel? Get your fill of German cuisine in Columbus' German Village neighborhood. A feast for both the eyes and taste buds, German Village's many eateries are complemented by the area's historic preservation. Classic schnitzels and sauerkraut reign supreme at Schmidt's Restaurant and Sausage Haus, while Juergen's German Bakery provides a number of traditional Bavarian dishes as well as a few modern takes on favorites. After a meal in this historic community, you may want to take a walk around the block before jumping into your Columbus rental car.

Get into the funnies
While it has likely been years since you've only read the comic page in the newspaper, no visitor is too old to appreciate the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. Located on The Ohio State University campus, this destination is only a short drive away in your Columbus car rental, and worth the effort! Housing everything from classic comic strips and books to modern graphic novels, there is a few pieces in this collection that are sure to delight everyone.
