Family Fun In Columbus Georgia
Callaway Gardens - a 13,000 acre resort is my top pick. We go year round for the tours of the gardens, walking trails, bike trails,(17 miles of trails) swimming, and the high flying circus in the summer. Additionally Callaway hosts several top events like the Masters Ski Tournament, Hot Air Balloon Festival, 4th of July celebration, and Fantasy in lights. You can get a year round car pass for you and 6 friends for $100. Best Value in the area.
Coca Cola Space Science Center - Laser light shows and simulated space missions. 701 Front Ave. Columbus Ga 31901 706-649-1470
Oxbow Meadows - Walk the tree top bridge and observe all kinds of nature. Located on the Chattahoochee river at 3491 S. Lumpkin Rd. Columbus GA 31903 706-687-4090
Civil War Naval Museum “Port Columbus”. Located along the River Walk at 1002 Victory Dr. Columbus Ga 31902 706-327-9798
River Walk - Beautiful 14 mile walk along the Chattahoochee from downtown to Fort Benning. There is also a riverwalk on the Phenix City side of the river which is not quite as long and left more natural. You can walk out on the rocks in the river on the Phenix City side from the riverwalk. It is about 2 miles in length and very pretty as well. In the near future they intend to bust one of the dams and create a recreational stretch for whitewater rafting in this area. It should be beautiful and attract a lot of tourism.
National Infantry Museum
New $85 million dollar expansion of the Infantry Museum located appropriately at the Home of the Infanty - Fort Benning
