The RiverWalk along the Chattahoochee River in Columbus is the best thing to ever happen to this city. Great for a wrokout or just have a seat on one of the many park benches along the way and watch the kids (young and old) run the rapids. You can rent a raft or kayak or a bike at several locations.

This particular attraction is great for the avid jogger or walker. In the summer, there is a water sprinkler pad for wet play that's neat for small children and playful adults. White water rafting sits on the banks of the Riverwalk with an island for patrons to view from. A zip-line was recently added. I've taken romantic walks along this... More

Great place to relax, exercise and watch the white water rafting. Zip line is up and running with a new tube slide coming shortly.

Well worth driving into downtown, finding a parking spot and getting out for a good walk....or bike ride, if you brought yours or want to rent one in town. This is a long trail along the river and it's falls, nicely paved and landscaped. Interesting old buildings too.

A lovely walk along the Chattahoochee with varied scenery including the new whitewater rafting area which is the longest urban whitewater course in the world.

Having recently moved here, we enjoy the riverwalk weekly with our bicycles. Nice way to enjoy the fresh air, kayakers and the river view.

If you're brave do the Zip line across the river to Alabama. Looks like a blast. We had a nice lunch in town and walked around the river. They did a nice job on the Columbus side redoing the whole walk. Looks nice and it is a nice long walk. Would say go for sure when you visit that area.

The Columbus River Walk is a breath taking place. Peace and beautiful views of the river, and Phonix City, AL. Great for a jog, or a just a stroll.
