From the open road to the campground, Airstream’s iconic, Ohio-built trailers are among the most stylish camper options on the market.
Now, The Mohicans Treehouse Resort and Wedding Venue wants you to enjoy the Airstream experience like you’ve never seen it before—25 feet off the ground.
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
Built from a 31-foot re-purposed 1978 Airstream trailer, the “Silver Bullet” is the latest in the resort’s lineup of luxurious treetop cabins. Equipped with black walnut flooring, recycled barn siding walls, indoor and outdoor showers, a skylight and a sauna, this cabin mixes the old with the new by blending vintage materials with the aluminum details of the classic aerodynamic trailer.
“This is something I’ve thought about doing for a long time,” The Mohicans owner Kevin Mooney said in a statement. “A few years ago, Airstreams were considered the ultimate in camping luxury. My other treehouses were built with luxury features, like hardwood walls and trim, black walnut flooring, cherry ceilings, ornate windows and quality furnishings. The Airstream offers a different kind of luxury.”
Those interested in reserving this or one of The Mohicans other spaces can contact (740) 599-9030 or [email protected] for pricing and availability.
It was a bummer to hear that Red, White & BOOM would be canceled and changed to a virtual format for 2020. However, that shouldn’t stop you from celebrating in a somewhat traditional sense. Even with one of the biggest fireworks celebrations put on hold, there’s still plenty to do around Columbus, fireworks or no fireworks.
We here at (614) know that given the modern-day circumstances, people have the choice to celebrate in whatever way they feel most comfortable. Below you can find three ways to celebrate–Local 4th of July events; Red, White & BOOM alternatives; and places where you can legally celebrate yourself.
Where: Zoombezi Bay, 10101 Riverside Dr., Powell, OH 43065
HOW TO CELEBRATE WITH RED, WHITE & BOOM
Red, White & BOOM was gearing up for its 40th anniversary before COVID-19 shut the mass gathering down. However, the beloved Columbus fireworks show will be hosting a virtual event over the first four days of July. The virtual campaign will air on NBC4.
Start the ooo-ing and ahhh-ing, Columbus, because we’ve got Zoo baby pics!
A Masai giraffe calf, a sea lion pup, two red panda cubs, and a siamang (gibbon) baby—all recent births at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium for these endangered species. It’s a show of commitment from the organization how they were able to nurture these species populations at-risk for extinction and bring new generations of them into the world.
“We are extremely proud to welcome these babies as they all represent hope for the future of species that are increasingly facing challenges in their native ranges,” said Columbus Zoo and Aquarium President/CEO, Tom Stalf. In the press release, Stalf detailed how special these births are as the threatened species received around-the-clock, top-quality care by the Animal Care staff over the three-month-closure of the Zoo, due to COVID-19.
OK, no more waiting—get your fill of cuteness below with these Zoo baby pics!
Masai Giraffe Calf
“A Masai giraffe calf was born on June 28, 2020, at 2:29 p.m. to mother, Zuri, in a behind-the-scenes barn of the Zoo’s Heart of Africa region.”

Walking down Weber Rd. toward I-71 this week, something was happening that most probably thought wouldn’t for at least another year: a group of kids playing basketball and being mentored by adults.
With the 2019-20 school year canceled, children have been confined to home, with most basketball hoops being boarded up. Summer camps were postponed and parents were starting to wonder, “What am I going to do with all of this bottled-up, youthful energy that’s been bouncing against my walls for the past few months?”
That answer was partially given on June 15, when Council President Pro Tem Elizabeth Brown and Mayor Andrew J. Ginther announced legislation to provide funds to programs for Columbus youth. The $2 million in grants was supported by Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds.
“Providing a safe place for our kids to learn and grow during the summer is vital for them and for working parents everywhere, and Columbus children deserve every opportunity to access enriching services that connect them to nature, wellness, and creativity,” Brown said in a press release.
In mid-June, the Columbus Recreation and Parks opened a select number of programming and camps with adjusted group sizes and increased safety protocols. With funds from the CARES Act, Columbus can expect to see more opportunities arise over the next couple of months.
