Visiting Canal Winchester
Fly into Port Columbus International Airport and you'll have a choice of several transport options for the approximately 17-mile journey to hotels in Canal Winchester. Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) buses present a public transportation option, but you will need to take at least three buses to complete the trip. Taxis are available 24 hours a day from the ground transportation area of the terminal, or you could arrange shuttle, limo, or charter bus services in advance through more than a dozen local companies serving the airport. The most convenient option is likely a rental car from one of eight on-site companies. Having rental cars near Canal Winchester also means you can enjoy a scenic drive in the countryside, or a day trip into Columbus. Spend time in the city itself and discover a couple of notable attractions: the Mid-Ohio Doll and Toy Museum, open Wednesdays through Saturdays; and the National Barber's Museum and Hall of Fame, where you can see thousands of items from barber poles to chairs and tools. Another local landmark is the restored circa-1887 Bergstresser Bridge across Little Walnut Creek, the only wooden-covered bridge in the county. If you enjoy outdoor recreation and are looking for hotels by Columbus, consider staying in Canal Winchester. Immediately to the west of town is Walnut Woods, a 1,032-acre park with groves of tall pines, restored wetlands, and numerous hiking and biking trails. You can also go fishing, kayaking, and canoeing on Big Walnut Creek, which forms the park's northern border.
