My husband and I love the Riverwalk! We go for runs when we can get a sitter, but our two toddlers enjoy it as well. We look for turtles, watch the kayakers, and just sit and talk as a family. It is beautiful! Downtown has great restaurants, so lunch is easy and close. We usually go at least every over... More

Excellent way to spend a late afternoon or early morning. Beautiful and full of interesting sights. Lots of restaurants along the Ga side. Great for biking or skating. I can't imagine what the negative reviews must have expected.

The River Walk is a nice place to go. You can ride bikes, walk, or run along the river. Nice views throughout most of the Riverwalk. There is a small amount of shade so if you don't like getting baked in the Summer go earlier in the morning or later at night. They added a "Splash Park" which is a... More

Great place to walk & relax. Watched kayaks & rafts on the Chattahoochee plus several fishermen. The island was fun to explore for children.

I have never been to Columbus, but I was impressed with the riverwalk. I wish that I had more time to look for geocaches. Also, next time I will rent a bike so I can explore more of the riverwalk.
