It is nice area. Just do not go at night unless there are a lot of people around. There are places to sit by the river.

You can walk, bike, go fast or slow on this amazing trail along the banks of the Chattahoochee River. Best of all you can capture the rapids that are enjoyed by the newest attraction of white water boating!

This is a most pleasant place to stroll or bike. You can start downtown and walk to Ft. Benning. Or picnic and come back way before. Folks love it on a sunny, warm day. You can raft from here through the new rapids. A great hit.

As a resident of Columbus, I can say a visit to our Riverwalk is a fun, relaxing activity. From bike rides to proposals, this area has lovely views. Be sure to check out the rock island at the end of the walk along with the Whitewater Rafting!

Columbus has done a nice job with its downtown, converting old cotton mills and warehouses into galleries, shops and condos. The Rivewalk area along the Chattahoochee River is quite pretty, offers scenic spots for strolling and special events held there. Take a nice stroll during the day or evening and take along your camera for some great shots.

This is a beautiful view of the river. Very walkable and near restaurants. Enjoyed walking to Alabama on the other side of the river. Children enjoyed the view and can cross another state of their visit list.

Live here and just take it for granted. Not today- spent the day watching the white water rafting on the hooch! The river walk had bikes, walkers and tourist enjoying the sun and the water. It has been very well maintained.

Loved the atmosphere. People were friendly, stopping to say "hello" or others were walking, running and biking on the sidewalk. It has definitely improved since I was last there in 1996. Great place to enjoy a cup of Joe on one of the numerous benches, or even take a walk on the "wild side" and head to the Whitewater Express... More

Columbus has done a wonderful job creating this beautiful river walk. They keep it well maintained and clean. Great if you want to use is as a place for your daily walk or if you want a romantic stroll with your sweetheart. They have since added the whitewater rapids to the mix so from time to time you can even... More
