From craft vodka to zoos, check out these local spots named among the country’s best in USA Today voting
Columbus has a whole lot to offer, and the annual USA 10Best Readers’ Choice Award nominations go a long way to prove this.
This year alone, The Arch City received nominations for everything from Best Zoo to Best Craft Vodka, with a whole lot of local businesses in between. The yearly awards nominate a handful of the country’s best products or destinations within a specific category, and then the country votes to name the best.
Here’s a list of the Columbus spots we found that were either nominated to be named the country’s best, or have already won this year (as some categories are on different voting timelines):
Best Botanical Gardens: The Dawes Arboretum (Newark)
Best Science Museum: COSI
Best Aerial Adventure Park: ZipZone Outdoor Adventures
Best Zoo: Columbus Zoo & Aquarium
Best Craft Vodka Distillery: Middle West Spirits
Best Craft Rum Distillery: Echo Spirits Distilling Co.
Best Craft Mixer Brand: Simple Times Mixers
Best Glamping Spot: The Inn at Cedar Falls, The Wilds
Best Cultural Festival: Dublin Irish Festival
