What You'll Do

Columbus downtown buildings range in styles from Beaux Arts to Gothic, Modern to Greek Revival, Neo-Classical to Chicago School, and more. Woven throughout the monumental and symbolic government and bank buildings, and the tucked-away architectural gems, outstanding public art and parks, are stories of our city's immigrant roots, natural disasters, and famous citizens. Our entertaining tour guides are experts in history and architecture and look forward to walking with you! Tour route is approximately 1.5 miles. Tour is outside and focuses on building exteriors, but we may pop in to one or two sites along the way. Key tour features may include: Huntington Bank Building, Wyandotte Building, LeVeque Tower, Palace Theatre, City Hall, Ohio Judicial Center, Riffe Center for Government & the Arts, Lazarus Department Store, Fifth Third Building, Ohio Theatre, Ohio Statehouse, Bricker & Eckler, Columbus Dispatch, Trinity Episcopal Church, Rhodes Tower, Pearl Alley, the Hayden Buildings and 8 on the Square. The tour will last about 90 minutes. The tour guide will be wearing a golf shirt with Columbus Landmarks logo.
