As the 15th largest city in the United States and the fastest growing city in Ohio, Columbus is bursting at the seams with things to do but, until now, there were few guides to help residents and visitors narrow down the options.
The new book 100 Things To Do In Columbus Before You Die (Reedy Press) highlights the best of the best in Columbus in the categories of food & drink, music & entertainment, culture & history, sports & recreation, and shopping & fashion. From rooftop restaurants and dog “pawties” to retro experiences like COSI’s electrostatic generator that is one of the original must-dos in the city, the book combines fun explanations about the top experiences with personal tips and advice from the author.
Author Anietra Hamper is a Columbus native, current resident and a long-time television news anchor in the market with a passion for sharing unique experiences in the city that she calls home. 100 Things To Do In Columbus Before You Die identifies businesses and experiences in the heart of the city as well as in the suburbs that have expanded the central Ohio landscape. While the book highlights the 100 best things to do, Anietra writes it as a gateway for individual exploration so that readers can discover their own personal bests in the city.
