Best time to visit Columbus, OH, USA?

  • We recommend traveling to Columbus during the month of April when temperatures are mild but room rates are less expensive. During this month, a small rental costs approximately $115 per night. That's $20 cheaper compared to June. Temperatures are in the mid 50s, a little cooler than the average 75°F you could experience during peak season.
  • Most tourists visit Columbus during the late spring/early summer. This is peak season so make sure to book your hotel room a few months early. The OSU vs OK Sooners week (September 8th - 11th), the Arnold Classic week (March 1st - 5th) as well as the OSU vs Michigan week (November 10th - 13th) are also very popular times that you should avoid if you don't like crowds.
  • Expect some snow if you visit Columbus between January and March.
