During the winter break, people travel around or go back to their hometown to celebrate Christmas with their families. However, if you are still in Columbus, you can still find some interesting places to go and experience some local life here. One thing you cannot miss during your study at Columbus is watching a show at the Ohio Theatre, a performing arts center located at 39 E. State Street in Columbus, Ohio. The Ohio Theatre is known as the “Official Theatre of the State of Ohio” and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977.
After my seven-day trip to San Francisco after our finals, I came back to Columbus on Christmas Eve. Well, a very useful tip is that you definitely want to store some food in your refrigerator or ask someone to kindly buy you some food if you plan to arrive home late on Chistmas Eve, since almost every store and restaurant is closed on Christmas. To celebrate Christmas, I bought tickets at Ticketmaster for The Nutcracker, a traditional Christmas-season ballet show, performed by BalletMet on Dec. 26, 2015 at the Ohio Theatre. The adventure with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince to the Land of Sweets is wonderful, especially with the score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (op. 71) played by the Columbus Symphony, conducted by Luis Biava. Many parents brought their children to this show and surely those young kids enjoyed it a lot!
