Yelp’s Guide for the Best Fourth of July in Columbus

The start of July is here and you’ve got a long weekend to soak up the vitamin D! We’ve partnered with our local Yelp Columbus team to bring you the hottest events you can’t miss this 4th!

Yelp’s can’t miss events:

  1. You gotta watch the fireworks, but where? We love catching it from the highest point in Franklin County — at The Golf Depot in Gahanna!
  2. If you’ve never been to the Ohio Roller Derby, this is a must-do on Saturday, 7/2.
  3. The quirky Doo Dah Parade should be on everyone’s list this weekend.

Where to eat:

Ringside Cafe

Ringside is a downtown fixture, and for good reason: Ringside is now the oldest bar in town… But the reason to visit is not the history, it’s the hamburgers. An important notice before I begin: they’re not small. Most clock in at at least 1/2 lb. Some are bigger. So if you have work to get done in the afternoon, caveat emptor.” – Sam P, Yelper

Hai Poke

My first bout with poké was amazing. On a bed of rice lies ahi tuna, jalapeños, onion, spicy sprouts, crispy wontons, avocado, and a drizzle of mayo and soy sauces. All of this goodness melds into a glorious fusion of flavors… The fact it’s a pop up only contributes to the experience.” – Alicia R, Yelper

Where to drink:

There is so much about this place to love! It’s nestled into a quiet, friendly neighbourhood with ample outdoor seating, nice ambiance and lighting. Hold up! Did I mention: Roof. Top. Bar… They have a killer drink menu, some really nice craft cocktails, a good selection of craft beer, and a fairly decent liquor selection.” – Zack F, Yelper

Dude. Skee-Ball… They have a good selection of games, and a couple multicades to get you your fix on games ranging from the common to the obscure. And… fold-out cup holders for your pint while you play. Speaking of common to obscure, they have 40 taps here.”  -Martin P, Yelper

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
