There’s a ton to see and do in Georgia, with multiple locations all across the state that are worth visiting. One of these places is the great city of Columbus.

There are also play areas for children and families that you can visit along the path. Certain areas of the path also allow you to get up close to the water with the proper safety gear, letting you watch the water from right along the shore.
