Rafting and Dining Along the Columbus Riverwalk

Home to whitewater rafting, delicious restaurants and more.

Columbus is the second largest city in Georgia, but residents there will tell you it should be the first stop on your next Southern Weekend.

Built around a vibrant downtown known to locals as Uptown, the city is full of restaurants, shopping and art centers. But the real highlight is a 15-mile walking and biking trail known as the Columbus Riverwalk.

The Riverwalk runs along the banks of the Chattahoochee River and borders Uptown, making it a premier destination for those looking to truly experience this Southern city.

Nothing but a short walk separates kayaking or rafting along the river’s Class V rapids, and some of the best food you’ll find in the state. And it’s all right here on the Riverwalk.
