5 Moms of Nationwide Share their Favorite Places to take their Kids in Columbus

Last week I was honored to be a guest on the Moms of Nationwide Blogger Panel! Eryn from 614 Mom and I shared some of our favorite things to do with our kids in Columbus including hidden gems, our favorite Columbus events and low-cost or free places to play! Of course I shared my list of 20 Free Indoor Play Areas in Columbus, but I also talked about some of our other favorite places like the OSU Airport and Barnstormer Diner, Riding the CBUS and the Scioto Audubon! It was a fun time connecting with other moms and getting a tour around the Nationwide Plaza! Plus I got to try out A Blessed Cookie Company on the first floor – cookies so good I might have to return as an outing with my kids one day! 😉

I’ve always wanted to walk across the Nationwide walkway!


How am I going to carry this heavy box of folders? Oh wait! There’s a stroller in my trunk! 🙂


Eryn and her goodie bags!


Yep. A Blessed Cookie Company would do the trick!


Getting ready!


Thanks to Tashira for organizing and hosting us!



One of the best things about starting this blog has been meeting so many new people and learning about so many things going on in Columbus! (Wait, I guess that’s two things! 😉 ) I turned the tables on the Moms of Nationwide and asked them to tell me 3 places THEY love to take their kids in Columbus!
