Columbus Art Walks are self-guided walking tours of several districts throughout Columbus. Each district has a map to direct you along the route. When you reach a point of interest, listen to a recorded message that tell you about it. You can either download the audio ahead of time, or call (614) 645-2646 and enter the number for your location. The majority of the routes are accessible and flat.
I did the German Village art walk this morning. I learned a lot,
and saw lots of photographable architecture, people, and pets along the way. It was a pleasant, educational stroll. I very much lookforward to touring the other areas as well!
