The Best Places To Watch The Sunset In Columbus

Is there any time more beautiful in Columbus than sunset?


In the winter, the sun is something we’re seriously lacking here in Columbus. The gray, cloudy cover that seems to be endless from December to March can wear even the most chipper among us down. That’s why I always like to make a little time to let the light in.

Even on the most disgusting days, a bright, colorful sunset can be a welcome surprise. You know the days I’m talking about. The ones where everything is sort of “blah” until early evening, but then, the clouds seem to clear away just in time to watch the sky light up.

There are stunning city views, beautiful countrysides, and majestic woodlands. Honestly, sunset in Columbus is the time to take in the beauty around town.
