Best way to spend a weekend in Columbus

My husband and I will be spending a weekend in Columbus in the middle of June. We are looking for some suggestions for fun things to do, that aren't bars. We will want to go out in the evening but would like to do other stuff during the day.

Thanks for your help!

What kinds of things are you interested in?

Some general ideas - Rent a bike and explore the trails, go for a walk along the riverfront at Bicentennial Park, go for a hike in one of the Metro Parks.

Visit the art museum (free on Sundays).

Go to a Clippers (AAA baseball) or Crew (MLS) game.

Actual and/or window shopping in the Short North or Easton.

Visit the Park of Roses.

Depending on which weekend in June, it may coincide with a major festival - Columbus Arts Fest, Comfest, or Pride.

Do read Restaurant Reviews.

Columbus and suburbs have some very nice restaurants.

ExpCols - thanks for the cheat sheet of places to check out. We are visiting Columbus 7/27 - 7/31 and we were looking for suggestions.

Same situation 2 days ago! We just drive around and see that is there. We stumbled upon neat stores. Japanese plaza. Easton mall, new foods to try! There is so much to do! Yelp helps too and basic what ever catches your eyes :)

If you want, you can drive down south, you can check out Scioto Downs for horse racing and Brew Brothers Restaurant which is very good. Check out German Village for good food and scenery. Enjoy the city!!!
