    your print screen button and popup window does not show the same as the web page. On the print screen page it does not have the name of the locations and has slightly different information than the actual web page.

      Ok, that’s weird! Thanks for letting us know. We have revised this post numerous times over the last 4 years. It looks like the “print” version is picking up a previous edit. Next year we’ll post our top picks as a page instead of a post!

    The Rock Ranch is awesome. It is about an hour and a half from Columbus, but well worth the drive. It is an inexpensive fun family place. We went and spent the entire day. It is fun for all ages!!! HIGHLY recommend it!!!

    Thank you so much for creating this website for those of us who have lived in Columbus a long time, but was not aware of all the places to go and things to see! I was researching a pumpkin patch to take my 6 year old daughter too and low and behold, up popped your sight:) It is truly wonderful, informative and parent friendly! Thank you for making this for us.
