Columbus is an authentic rivertown. Today, the river is home to the 15-mile trail known as the Chattahoochee RiverWalk. The RiverWalk provides an excellent facility to bike, in-line skate, jog, or just take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the scenery.
Locally, Columbus offers a variety of fine attractions, such as the State Theatre of Georgia, the historic Springer Opera House; Port Columbus Civil War Naval Museum; the National Infantry Museum; The Columbus Museum; the beautiful Historic District and spectacular architecture of the MidTown Historic District; and the Coca-Cola Space Science Center.
As Georgia's second-largest city, Columbus has more than 4,000 quality hotel/motel rooms and numerous meeting facilities. And, with so many fine accommodations and convention space, the city plays host to hundreds of tour groups as well as state, regional, and national meetings each year. Columbus is home to Fort Benning, the best Army installation in the world.
