Columbus Car Rentals & Travel Guide

Welcome to Ohio's capital and one of the most bustling cities in the Midwest: Columbus. Known for being the home of the Ohio State University, Columbus boasts a lively arts scene, plenty of social activities, and an incredible culinary landscape. Whether you're shopping at the Easton Town Center or exploring the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the city entertains. So, start looking for flights to Columbus, because it's time to have a blast.

Zooming around C-Bus

Port Columbus International Airport is just six miles from downtown and many centrally located Columbus hotels. You can get to your lodging quickly by booking a car, van or truck with one of the Columbus car rental agencies located in the parking garage (where you can pick up your vehicle). Once you've dropped off your bags in your hotel, go explore the surrounding region. Yellow Springs, with sights like Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve, John Bryan State Park, and a quaint downtown, is just over 50 miles away. Cincinnati is within two hours, and with cultural attractions like the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and Cincinnati Museum of Art, makes for a great day trip.

Exploring Columbus

Catch a play at Ohio Theater, then party in the Short North Arts District. Have coffee in German Village before taking a tour of the Ohio Statehouse. Say hello to some wild beasts at the Columbus Zoo, and then be inspired by majestic paintings at the Columbus Museum of Art. If you're here in the fall, try to get a cheap ticket for a Buckeyes football game and join the 100,000-plus at Ohio Stadium.
