About Columbus, GA

Columbus, GA is located approx. 1.5 hours southwest of the Hartsfield – Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). Columbus is nestled alongside the Alabama state line to which we are separated by the Chattahoochee River. The river is now home to one of the largest urban white water rafting courses. Raft, canoe, kayak, paddle board or just sit on the banks and take in the view of the river and the southern sunsets. If you don’t feel like getting your toes wet, then just feel free to zip line over the river to our neighbors stomping grounds in Phenix City, AL. Columbus was once Georgia’s last frontier outpost, now its second largest city and home to Ft. Benning, home of the United States Infantry School. Columbus has grown so much as a city in the past 10 years and become a destination instead of a stop on the way to the beach. Broadway is home to great food, awesome bars, live entertainment, shopping and outdoor adventures.
