Columbus Ga River Magnet
It took almost ten years to plan, fund and build the White Water Course, WOW!! What a difference good city planning can make. For those who thought, is was a waste of money, you were wrong, big time. The River Walk is a magnet for new fun stuff to do, and now with Columbus Ga. Whitewater, Uptown is drawing more fun businesses. Attractions are popping up like White Water Rafting, and Kayaking, and the newly redesigned pedestrian bridge at 14th Ave. The White Water Zip-Line and more. Like new restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. we’re on our way to becoming the “Atlanta of south Georgia”.
