Westerville is not only one of the largest Columbus-area suburbs in terms of size and population, it also offers a huge variety of dining, activities and even festival options, and we’re here to show you all the best the city has to offer.

Visit Westerville’s Spring/Summer 2023 tourism guide is officially live, and it’s packed with suggestions for restaurants, warm weather markets and concerts, event venues and a whole lot more.

Did you know that Westerville was home to the Anti-Saloon League in the early 1900s (although today it boasts a DORA and multiple craft breweries), and even has a long history of helping enslaved Americans make their way further north along the Underground Railroad? Were you aware the city is also home to historic Otterbein University, and boasts a unique series of rowing races multiple times each year that you can take in for free on the banks of the Hoover Reservoir?

And when you get hungry, the city offers a multitude of pizza styles, upscale tea, barbecue, family-run bakeries, chic cocktail bars and so much more.

We could go on, but we’ll let you take it all in for yourself instead. You can check out the guide in its entirety below:
