Back to School Blues?

Compass Homes, your Columbus home builder, realizes summer is almost over and some schools are already back in session…but don’t be sad! You can sneak a bit more out of summer, and we have some great suggestions for some local trips you can do with your family!

Here is a list of local places that we really enjoy and think your family might as well:

  1. Columbus Zoo: With so many amazing things to see your kids are sure to love every second! Where else can you feed stingrays, goats, and giraffes in one spot?
  2. Scioto Audubon: This is a beautiful 120-acre oasis in downtown Columbus. It is known for its birding, but visitors can enjoy fishing, boating, hiking and jogging as well. The park features the largest free outdoor climbing wall in the United States!
  3. Franklin Park Conservatory: FPC is a place for everyone…you will experience, culture, nature and art all in one place. It is a very hands-on experience for your younger children, and aesthetically stunning for all!
  4.  Zoombezi Bay: For your adventurous little ones, Zoombezi bay promises a calm and sleepy drive home after all the fun and excitement they experience while at Water Park. It boasts a new attraction called Baboon Lagoon, the multi-level play structure includes 90 interactive aquatic controls to give participants a myriad of possibilities to explore and play, 10 exciting water slides, and the iconic 1,000-gallon tipping water bucket that Zoombezi Bay and Wyandot Lake guests have enjoyed for over 20 years.

Columbus has so many unique locations to experience with your family to round out summer, these are just a few of your custom home builder’s Columbus, Ohio favorites!  We want to wish everyone a wonderful 2014/2015 school year!
