Conspicuously docked at Battelle Riverfront Park, The Santa Maria, quite possibly the world’s most authentic replica of the flagship in the fleet of Christopher Columbus, awaits curious visitors. The Santa Maria is one of the nation’s only working museum-quality replicas of the ship that led Columbus’ fateful voyage across the Atlantic in 1492. Tour guides provide a glimpse into life on-board The Santa Maria for her 40-sailor crew. Find more information on visiting The Santa Maria on the web at http://www.santamaria.org/visitor_info.php.
From the deck of the Santa Maria, you can see the Franklin County Veterans Memorial. The Vet is one of the most popular event venues in Central Ohio. From graduations to trade shows, Veterans Memorial plays host to some of biggest events in Columbus.
Columbus offers a delightful mix of family fun and nightlife entertainment. During your stay, be sure to check out these popular attractions:
Brewery District / German Village
