Vote Now: Columbus Parent's 2019 Family Faves

Julanne Hohbach

Where is your family’s go-to place for pizza? What’s the best place to buy kids clothes? Which outdoor play space is your favorite? We want to know!

Voting is now open for the 2019 Columbus Parent Family Faves annual reader poll. For the ninth year, we’re seeking your opinions on the best family-friendly businesses, dining, activities and events in Central Ohio.

There are 40 categories, each of which has multiple nominees—a list made up of those who earned at least 5 percent of the vote in last year’s survey. (In cases where a business closed, we substituted the next-highest vote-getter.) Each question also has an option to write in your own choice if your favorite isn’t listed.

New this year: Favorite Martial Arts Instruction, Swim Instruction, Day Trip, Kid-friendly Suburb and Spot for Fall Fun.

Voting closes at noon July 5. There is a limit of one ballot per person. Cast yours HERE.

Nominees (or those who want to launch a write-in campaign) can download Family Faves marketing materials at

Winners (as well as runners-up and honorable mentions) will be revealed in our Fall issue. We can’t wait to see who you pick!
