Beautiful!

A pleasant evening stroll beside the Chattahoochee. Beautifully renewed downtown area perfect for biking, walking, running, or simply people watching.

The Columbus Riverwalk is a great asset for Columbus. Great for walkers and bike riders it provides a variety of scenery to keep your exercising interesting. It starts up at the marina for Lake Oliver at the Highway 80 bypass and goes all the way down to Ft. Benning. There is a slight break where the northern segment isn't connected... More

Took a walk along the river and watched some kayaks take the rapids. The riverwalk is kept up and is beautiful.

Great space to stroll and relax. Nice view of the river. We stopped by after dinner to look at the river. You can watch the people kayaking.

I was very surprised how nice the downtown river walk area is in Columbus. The entire downtown Columbus is actually worth a visit. There are a number of brew pubs and restaurants we enjoyed including live music. The River walk provided a nice stroll that can also serve as a great running route. Columbus is not quite Chattanooga, but it... More

I encountered the Riverwalk north of 13th Street, where there is a dedicated pedestrian/bike bridge. The bridge offered passage for bicycles and pedestrians, with separate paths for both. From the bridge you could travel north or south on the Riverwalk. I walked south for a bit along the Riverwalk. This is a great project that will be even better when... More

We walked down the Riverwalk to the old mill. It was nice to see how the old warehouses have been renovated into something new and useful.

We had dinner at a nearby restaurant. It was great to be able to walk along the river after dinner. It felt safe and was interesting--we were lucky to be with some locals who knew some of the history of some of the buildings, etc. we were seeing. We stopped to watch some kayakers ride the rapids. The Riverwalk is... More
