In just over a week my husband and I will spending our 11th wedding anniversary in Columbus, OH! We’ll be bringing the kids with us because there are too many fun things for families to leave the kids at home. As a Pittsburgh Mom Blogger I was invited along with other local bloggers, Janene and Christine from More than Mommies and Heather from Diary of a First Time Mom, to #ExperienceColumbus with our families.

You can follow my family’s trip to Columbus on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram (#CFOTBExperienceColumbus and #CFOTBRoarAndExplore).

There is an amazing and affordable Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway Package that can help you #ExperienceColumbus with your family.

What fun things can you do in Columbus, OH with your family?

Starting at just $411 plus tax for a family of four, the Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway features:
Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, ranked the No. 1 zoo in America, unveils its 143-acre Heart of Africa exhibit May 22. Visitors can stand face-to-face with giraffes and feed them a snack; get up-close with lions as they board a grounded airplane; and take a camel ride in the Zoo’s newest and largest region. This stunning new exhibit is home to 150 animals and adds even more reason for travelers to visit the place famed zoo director Jungle Jack Hanna calls home.

Zoombezi Bay, the world’s only waterpark inside of a major zoo, opens Baboon Lagoon this season. Ideal for younger kids, this active play land boasts eight water slides, fountains and a 1,000-gallon bucket dump. Beyond Baboon Lagoon, guests can splash and scream through 17 twisting waterslides, extreme raft rides, headfirst racers and the hair-raising 209-foot Cyclone, the world’s largest reducing-radius slide. Zoombezi also offers the more laid-back, adults-only Crocktail Creek, a lazy river where moms and dads can relax.

COSI, the nation’s top science center, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year by hosting The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes. Brand new this year and running only through September, guests get their own book full of clues and can join master detective Sherlock Holmes to participate in experiments and stay hot on a trail to crack a new mystery. In addition, COSI visitors can ride a high-wire unicycle, use sonar technology and get wild with loads of other hands-on activities that make science fun.

•As the preferred hotel of the Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway, the Drury Inn &and Suites offers special amenities, including: free, hot breakfast and evening snacks; indoor pool; and complimentary wireless Internet. Other Hotels are available, but prices may vary by location.
