Major Attractions in Columbus
Columbus has enough history museums to keep any buff entertained, such as the National Infantry Museum, the National Civil War Museum at Port Columbus, and the Columbus Museum; there is also plenty of nightlife entertainment. The RiverCenter, Springer Opera House, and Emily Woodruff Hall put on performing arts shows year round and host annual events such as the Miss Georgia Beauty Pageant. For daytime family fun, tour around the Coca-Cola science center, which features seven flight simulators and a planetarium. The MidTown area covers the shopping activities of many tourists on Columbus vacations, with its indoor mall and strip mall, the Landings. If that isn't enough to sustain your shopping spree, travel to the northern part of town for an even larger strip mall, Columbus Park Crossing.
