Outdoor Fun for Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is here! Although it may be the unofficial end to summer, there’s still time to head outdoors and experience all that Columbus has to offer.

Sunflowers, Glorious Sunflowers!

Visiting a sunflower field is a “must do” in late summer or fall, and fields are popping up all over. Grab your family or friends, and get ready to post your sunny pics on IG when you visit one of these sunflower fields around Central Ohio!


Drive-In Movies

Remember drive-in movies? The old-school open-air theatre’s are having a renaissance, since staying in your car is a great way to get out while social distancing. And they’re popping up all over Columbus, along with plenty of outdoor movie screenings. Here are some spots where you can safely catch a flick with friends this summer at an outdoor movie theatre around Cbus. https://whatshouldwedotodaycolumbus.com/drive-in-movies-in-columbus/
