Check out the beauty of Central Ohio from your Columbus rental car

Located in central Ohio, Columbus is where government, education, and culture come together.. The city is full of unexpected treasures  -- especially epic cuisines, lively festivals, and wild Buckeye fans. From the bustling nightlife on High Street to the secluded but awe-inspiring foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, you’ll have a time to remember in Columbus.

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!

Green Space
Sitting on the edge of the Appalachian mountains, Columbus is surrounded by picturesque green rolling hills. Just outside of the city, a short trip with your rental car, is Wayne National Forest. The forest is a perfect escape from the bustling city where you can hike through the woods, canoe down the river, or drive a scenic byway. The forest is an excellent place to enjoy wildflowers in the spring or fall colors in autumn. Hocking Hills, located just outside of Wayne National Forest, is a true highlight in Ohio. Here, you can wander through some of Ohio’s hidden treasures like cliffs, caves, and waterfalls.

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.
