Worthington is a little escape without venturing too far outside of Columbus central. With plenty of delicious places to eat and things to do you don’t really need to go much further.
Sometimes there are so many places on our list of places we want to try that we decide to check a bunch of them off together all in one day. We recently had a mini tour of some of what Worthington has to offer and as usual left feeling the need to return ASAP.
We started our morning with doughnuts, cinnamon rolls, and scones at Mrs. Goodman’s. At the time they were just launching the doughnuts featuring their signature buttercream! While they still have many of the signature items their loyal customers have come to hold dear, they do like to add some new items so that you also have the option to try new things. I especially love seeing all the different decorated cakes on their Instagram feed. Interested in more of what they have to offer? Check out our dedicated post to Mrs. Goodman’s HERE.
We then walked next door to The Salt House, whose owners have known each other since Kindergarten! They offer dry salt therapy in the form of ground pharmaceutical grade salt blown into the air of a space that feels light and airy like a spa. The result is a generally relaxing environment, welcoming to everyone. They also have a salon and massage studio upstairs. We were able to experience their salt relaxation room and a quick massage which none of us wanted to end.
After feeling sufficiently relaxed, we had some free time to wander through the Worthington Farmer’s Market. Some of us shopped for produce or other local food products while others found more things to eat or a nice patio on which to enjoy a cocktail.
After perusing around we reconvened for lunch at The Half Pint, their newest location making it 5 total. We tried their cheese curds, PB&J burger, street tacos, cajun shrimp tacos, soft pretzels, and topless salad (yes it’s a burger on top of a salad without the bun!). Definitely a great place to grab a beer and enjoy some better bar food.
After lunch we split into two groups. Most went a couple doors down to AR Workshop to design their own wooden pedestals. This studio is great for girls nights, parties, team building and more. You can even bring your own food and drinks to enjoy while completing your masterpiece.
Meanwhile, a couple more adventurous types went North a little bit to ZipZone in the treetops of Camp Mary Orton to try their skills on the Adventure Park courses. Some of the obstacles are more difficult that they look but a lot of fun for those who like physical activity with problem solving.
We finally met back up across the street from where we began at Porch Growler where we reflected on our day over some pints of beer, pizza from Pizza Primo, and sweet treats from Mrs. Goodman’s again. Because no meal is complete without dessert!
For an inside scoop on our day you can also check out IG stories from CbusFoodAuthority, SamSaysYum, ColumbusDateNightGuide, SweetlyCbus, and SpiffyColumbus. Also Lakes and Lattes wrote a blog post about how Worthington is a great place for an adult play date and we couldn’t agree more. Meanwhile Columbus Date Night Guide also posted several ideas for date night in Worthington!
Thanks to Julie at Mrs. Goodman’s for organizing this wonderful day!
