Train at Easton Town Center, Columbus, Ohio

I have always loved shopping at Easton and after I had kids, I would often bring them to Easton when they were babies just to push them around in the stroller and sip on an iced coffee from Starbucks. As they grew, they loved looking at the model train, running around the fountain and eventually graduated to coveting everything in The LEGO Store!  When it was built last year, we moved on to spending hours at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Columbus!

The Pop-up Fountains at the Town Square offer a great way for the kids to cool off after a day of shopping! Complimentary towel service is available on the weekends and don’t miss the model train display just on the edge of the fountain area! Benches are available around the fountains or I recommend bringing your own blanket to sit on!

7. LEGOLAND Discovery Center Columbus

LEGOLAND has been a huge draw to Easton for my family! My boys are LEGO fanatics so it’s hard to go to Easton without going to LEGOLAND or at the very least stopping in at the attached LEGO Store! LEGOLAND Discovery Center Columbus offers 2 rides, 4D movies, 10 play areas, a MINILAND, cafe (they serve Starbucks!) and building workshops! To save time you can purchase a ticket time online.
