The results speak for themselves – Columbus is ranked sixth in the U.S. for architectural innovation and design, as noted by the American Institute of Architects.

Great experience. We did the Miller House Tour, had a nice lunch downtown by the tourism office, and then did the architecture tour. Both so interesting. Loved it!!

Columbus is a gem! Made a stop here on our way across the country, and we were more than pleasantly surprised…I wish we’d spent another day in town…we hope to return soon to explore the wonders we did not get to see.
