The votes are in! We asked our locals to pick their favorite things to do in Dublin for the ultimate Day Trip. Here’s what they said:
Get Outdoors – Indian Run Falls Park
Dublin is home to several waterfalls but perhaps the most well-known is Indian Run Falls. Just steps from Downtown, Indian Run Falls has all the elements of outdoor bliss in one place to start your day trip off right. Equipped with ample parking, you can hear the rushing water from the moment you get out of your car. A short trail leads you directly to the upper falls, while a longer, more scenic path will take you to observation decks to view the lower falls. Pro Tip – wait to visit until after it rains to ensure your visuals are especially spectacular.

Grab Some Grub – Frank & Carl’s
The newest kid on the Bridge Park block is serving up yummy goods in style. After a hike, you’ll want to head directly to Frank & Carl’s to carb load with their impressive menu of hand-crafted sandwiches. Grab them to-go and head to a pocket park to soak in the hustle and bustle of this vibrant district.

Take the Link
Opening earlier this year, The Dublin Link pedestrian bridge is a local favorite. The Link, as residents call it, connects Historic Dublin to the new Bridge Park district over the Scioto River, making Downtown Dublin a walkable, vibrant place to visit.

Shop Dublin-Inspired Gifts – Extravagifts
Nestled in the charming streets of Historic Dublin, Extravagifts is your one-stop-shop for gifts and souvenirs of all kinds. Shop Dublin-inspired items like their Dublin Link collection (pictured) or pick up an Ohio State gift for your favorite Buckeye. With everything from candles to handbags, it’s safe to say you’ll be leaving with a full shopping bag.

Savor Sweet Flavors – Johnson’s Real Ice Cream
The perfect end to any outing: Ice Cream. Johnson’s Real Ice Cream has been scooping up sweet memories since 1950. We recommend the Irish Sundae, exclusively available at their Dublin location, for a sweet treat with a Celtic twist. Take your dessert outdoors and grab a seat on their patio, overlooking the quaint streets of Historic Dublin.
