Flights To Columbus

Close your eyes, and imagine a time when horse-drawn carriages galloped through the streets and boats traveled in a hurry toward the shore to unload their wares. Back before cellphone alerts occupied the mind, there was a time when the day was tracked by the sun and a westward mentality inspired great exploration. Today, some American cities pay homage to the times of yore by maintaining relics and appreciating the simple things. Columbus, Ohio, is one such place.

The capital of Ohio is steeped in American history: Its roots trace back to 1812. When you fly into the Port of Columbus International Airport (CMH), you’re just steps away from the city's roots. Throughout the area, there are numerous prehistoric Indian burial mounds; at the Mound City Group National Monument at Chillicothe, 23 unique humps rise up from the ground. Other sites, including the Franklin Park Conservatory and Fort Hayes pay tribute to important parts of local history. The only thing between you and a getaway in the steps of history is booking one of our flights to Columbus.

Transportation from CMH

When your Columbus flight lands on the tarmac, everything from the iconic North Market and juicy burgers of The Thurman Café sing to your soul. Thankfully, you’re never far away from the city’s attractions, thanks to the diverse transportation options. Most hotels close to Port Columbus International offer free airport transfers, and you can purchase a ticket to ride the CMH shuttle bus into the city. The Central Ohio Transit Authority also offers bus services from the airport to the city and surrounding areas, and taxis and limousines are available for hire. Book a rental car when you book Columbus plane tickets, and you can explore Greater Ohio at your leisure. A number of car rental kiosks are also located at the airport arrival terminals.

Hotels Near CMH

You saved big on your Columbus airfare and you deserve to indulge in a stay at one of the best hotels in the city. Book a room or suite at one of these centrally located accommodations, and the city is your oyster:

  • Hyatt Regency Columbus: Staying in the Arena District, all the flavors of the city are within reach of your taste buds. Check out trendy bars and spend your mornings at cheerfully chic cafes. At the end of every day, the plush bedding and upscale amenities of the hotel keep you cozy.
  • Hilton Columbus Downtown: You’re surrounded by art when you stay at the Hilton Columbus Downtown. More than 200 original works adorn the halls here, and the contemporary vibe only adds to the feeling that you’re staying in a private art gallery.
  • The Blackwell Inn and Pfahl Conference Center: The Blackwell prides itself on elegance and sophistication. Enjoy nightly chef specials at the restaurant and sip on cocktails at the evening happy hour. This is the only hotel on the Ohio State University campus, so you’re never far from the Buckeye crowd.

You can also stretch your legs as you stroll the 88 acres at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Garden. No matter where you turn, it seems there is something growing in Columbus. Before you leave, stop by the Kelton House Museum, a lovely Victorian home that has been restored to its former glory and houses period furnishings and art.
