Our next fun summer adventure might come as a little surprising. This town has not always been known as a place to go visit, but it has really turned a corner in the past few years...COLUMBUS, GA! Columbus is a quick trip, only taking a little over 2 hours to reach from our Moultrie office.
The downtown part of Columbus, which is referred to as "Uptown", sits on the glorious Chattahoochee River. Visitors can walk along the 20 miles of the "RiverWalk" and enjoy watching the river flow, adventure activities, and wildlife along the way. Bike rentals are also available along the River Walk, as well as fishing. The atmosphere is very inviting, and you'll find tourists and locals alike enjoying the water.
For the more adventurous ones, Columbus offers a 2.5 mile stretch of whitewater rafting entertainment. It was recently named one of the Top 12 Man-Made Adventures in the WORLD by USA Today!
There are options ranging from mild to wild, a lazy river to Class V rapids...something for everyone! Flat water lovers can enjoy a more relaxing kayak ride or give stand up paddle boarding a go. Little Bitties can cool off in the heat by enjoying Uptown's Splash Pad while Mom and Dad enjoy the scenery of Woodruff Park.
For a new venture, try geocaching around Columbus-it's like a treasure hunt using your phone as a GPS or "treasure map!" Unique birds have come back to the area since the restoration of the Chattahoochee River, also making this a hotspot for those bird watchers out there!
After a day full of activity, enjoy the city with a wide range of restaurants to choose from. Columbus hosts live music, different stores and boutiques, coffee shops, breweries, and unique food!
Live it up with some fine wining and dining or cheaper eats - whatever fits your fancy. Enjoy sitting outside with a river view or appreciate the air conditioning after a long day!
This trip can be done in a day, but for the overnighters, there are plenty of hotels to choose from based on your budget.
