Columbus Short North Walking Tour

Tours Columbus
$175
Learn why it is called "The Short North" and see what makes it so special on this 1.5-hour walking tour. See some of the most beautiful Victorian homes in the city. Find out what the Circus has to do with Columbus. Meet local artists in our local galleries. Visit the Cap at Union Station, a shopping center built on a bridge. Connect with one of the most popular and trendy areas in town.

The Short North's name originated as a nickname for an area in decline, an area that had fallen just short of the central business area's north end, both physically and economically.

The Short North is now known for its art galleries, specialty shops, pubs, nightclubs, coffee houses, and a great deal of Ohio History and culture. The Short North is also the home of a number of huge Columbus festivals including the Community Fest (ComFest), Pride Festival, The Doo Dah Parade, Highball Halloween, and monthly Gallery Hops. Signified by the 17 metal archways that are adorned with lights, The Short North is where Columbus once earned the nickname “Arch City.”

You walk through one of the most vibrant and trendy areas of the city. You'll start in Goodale Park, a former staging area for Union Soldiers and the first public park in the city, before strolling down one of the main streets in town. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes only available in this amazing area. You'll also enjoy the Italian and Victorian Villages where many houses are registered in the National Registry of Historic Places. If time allows and your stomach is growling, we'll stop by the famous North Market for some incredible samples and maybe lunch.

This tour is perfect for anyone who wants to see the local and fashionable side of Columbus as well as some beautiful historic homes. Take the tour during the day in order to plan your activities that night. Bring your cameras and a small appetite as this area is pleasurable for all of your senses. This tour easily combines with the Downtown Walking Tour, the OSU tour, or other Columbus Tours.

Pour-Your-Own Custom Scented Candle Experience

Classes Columbus
$19
The Candle Lab has been helping people discover the magic of custom fragrance for more than ten years.  Pouring your own custom-scented candle is a fun, creative, hands-on activity that's perfect for kids and adults alike!  You'll start by smelling our wall of candles.  With over 120 fragrances, we're willing to bet you'll find more than a handful you'll love!  That's where our in-store team of Scent Stylists come in - we'll help you narrow down your list to just a few scents that blend perfectly together.  You'll design your label and mix your oils to create your unique custom scent, and then pour your very own candle! Our candles combine all natural soy-based wax, cotton paper wicks, and pure fragrance oils to make a long-lasting and clean-burning candle. Come in for a memorable experience and leave with the best scent you've ever owned!

  • Choose any 8 ounce candle jar valued at $19 or less (~12 options). 
  • Reservations are not required for groups of 4 or fewer.  Just come on in!
  • The process of pouring your own candle takes about 30 minutes in store.
  • Candles then take ~90 minutes to set and cool before they are ready to take home.  This is a great time to grab a bite to eat or drink or explore the neighborhood!  Our in-store team would be happy to provide recommendations.  
  • If you want to pour a candle and pick it up that same day, please plan to visit the store no more than approximately two hours before close (6 PM Mon-Sat, 3 PM Sun) as candles take ~90 minutes to cool before they are ready to take home.  If you don't mind picking up your candle another day, then you are more than welcome to stop in anytime before close to pour.
