Top Instagram-Worthy Spots in Columbus, Ga.

Everywhere you turn Columbus, Georgia is filled with beautiful photo opportunities. From the Chattahoochee River to the historical architecture. Here’s some of our favorite photo spots throughout this lively city.

 

 

Fountains

Known as the “Fountain City,” you will find fountains scattered throughout town that have been a part of Columbus for many years. 

Uptown’s Alleyway

Twinkling lights hung with love, this alleyway adds a little sparkle to any picture.

The Water Tower

 Soaring high into the sky, this water tower is located along the river right beside the Eagle and Phenix Mill, which has been restored into living spaces. That’s what I call a view to wake up to!

Historic District

Crawling with history and beautiful architecture, the historic district refuels and replenishes your love for the beautiful homes that have been around since the 1800s. What's even better is you can take tours of the gorgeous homes throughout the year! 

   

Chattahoochee RiverWalk

A linear park that’s 15 miles long of greenery and fresh air along the Chattahoochee River. Rent a bike to ride along it and feel the river breeze along your face. 

The Waveshaper Island

Get the rafters experience without actually being in the water by snapping some shots of The Island. The Island is a viewing and Paddler Access point along the Chattahoochee River attached to the Columbus RiverWalk by a pedestrian bridge. Not only will you get great shots, but you will get a feel of what it’s like to be riding the rapids!

     

Whitewater Express Greeting

Greeting all who pass by or who are getting ready to raft or zipline. This mural makes you want to experience Columbus.

Mabella’s Cheesecake

Mabella’s cheesecake is so epic that they painted it on their brick wall outside. It makes a sweet picture and leaves you wanting a bite.

 

Splashpad

Right next to the RiverWalk, the Splashpad makes a lot of noise during the spring and summer. Kids from all over love to make a splash at this awesome outdoor water feature with 32 water jets shooting 8 feet in the air with water sprouts that can be lit and programmed to music.
