This unique vacation getaway allows you to build a vacation package to suit your family and stay within your budget.

Call 800/245-8387 to learn more.
In a quick look around the Getaway Package Page, I found hotels as low as $57/night! You’ll want to book soon because some hotels have already sold out of the rate package for various dates. There are plenty of additional free or cheap family events and festivals going on around Columbus through the summer. Search the calendar and categories on Columbus on the Cheap for more ideas while you’re visiting! Looking for more ideas for dining out with kids around Columbus?
