Columbus is known for its unique attractions, with places such as the Coca-Cola Space Science Museum offering exhibits, it’s an educational experience that promises entertainment. Fun fact — Coca-Cola was invented in Columbus by John Pemberton, hence the name of the museum.
Probably the strangest and most bizarre attraction in Columbus is the Lunchbox Museum. Located in downtown Columbus, this museum is the ‘largest lunchbox museum’, and was even featured on NBC’s Today Show. Its status begs the question, are there other – smaller – ‘lunchbox museums’? The answer is, yes!
Columbus is the site of one of the last battles of the Civil War, despite this battle being fought three days after the Civil War had ended. During the Civil War, Columbus was the second-biggest supplier of weapons to the confederate army. Columbus is full of remnants from the Civil War past — The Columbus Historic District, located in downtown Columbus, still has the brick streets that are presumed to be from the Civil War era.
The Shoppes at Bradley Park is a lifestyle center, located in northern Columbus. It offers ‘upscale shops and unique boutiques’, such as the Galleria Riverside, which is the perfect spot for those looking for unique art, cute accents pieces, and trendy women’s clothing. With this having been mentioned, the city caters to the ‘Franchise Fanatics’ by offering a bevy of your standard shopping venues, such as The Columbus Park Crossing, Peachtree Mall, and The Landings, which appeal to suburbanites.
Columbus is known for its outdoor activities. It houses the world’s largest white-water rafting and kayaking course on the Chattahoochee River, which is approximately 2.5 miles long. The rapids opened in 2012 after the Eagle and Phenix dam in downtown Columbus was breached, restoring the river to its natural flow and creating the perfect conditions for the rapids that now inhabit the space. The river also has a zipline called the Blue Heron Adventure that travels 1,200 feet above the river — from the Columbus, Georgia side through to the Alabama side.
Another popular outdoor activity is The Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Centre, which opened in 1995. The center features trails, displays, and exhibits that teach visitors about the biodiversity of the area and its importance.
Columbus has over fifty parks! The Cooper Creek Park in the northern region offers fishing and tennis. The tennis courts are part of the largest soft-court public tennis facilities in the U.S.
Flat Rock Park offers audio relaxation in the form of flowing water. Beyond relaxation, the park also features a bike trail — for those looking to get their heart rate up —that goes around the park’s large perimeter. When you're ready to cool down, just head on over to Lake Oliver and take a plunge.
Meanwhile, Heritage Park offers something slightly different to an ordinary park, it’s alive with Columbus’ history. The placement of educational plaques and statues around the park takes visitors on a walking discovery of the history of Columbus while adventuring through pleasant scenery.
