We’ve written several posts about Columbus, Indiana before and today’s we’re excited to congratulate Columbus on their recent ranking as one of AOL Travel/Visa Signature’s  Ten Places To See In The U.S. Before You Die. Columbus is by far the smallest town on the list which includes such heavy hitters as New Orleans, The Grand Canyon, New York’s Times Square and The Strip in Las Vegas.

A small town of just 39,000, Columbus, Indiana has made a name for itself in the architectural community, and is considered one of the most architecturally-rich cities in the entire country. Columbus is home to buildings and sculptures by architectural visionaries like I.M. Pei, Dale Chihuly, and Eliel Saarinen.
