In the heart of the American South, Columbus sprawls on the west bank of the Chattahoochee River. Connected to Alabama by one of the longest free-flowing rivers in the US, Columbus promises a rich history, stunning nature and a vibrant scene of arts and culture.

Getting Around and Mobility

To get the most out of your trip, hiring a car is recommended. Public transport options are limited and the city's attractions are spread out. All you need is a valid driving licence, but remember, unlike in the UK, driving is on the right-hand side.

Driving & Traffic Rules

In addition to driving on the right side, obeying speed limits strictly is important. Speed limits generally range from 30mph in residential areas to 70mph on interstate highways. Unlike UK traffic circles, roundabouts in Georgia are much less common, and junctions are more often controlled by stop signs or traffic lights.

Parking in the City

Parking in downtown Columbus is effortless with plenty of parking lots and spaces. Pay close attention to any parking regulations to avoid fines. Many hotels also offer free parking for their guests.

Must-Visit Attractions

From getting up close with exotic animals at the Columbus Zoo, immersing in military history at the National Infantry Museum, to taking a leisurely stroll in the Columbus Riverwalk, the city offers plenty for everyone. Get behind the wheel and explore all these attractions at your own pace.

Recommended Driving Routes

For a memorable drive, nothing beats driving along the Chattahoochee River on the Riverwalk. For a longer drive, head north of Columbus for a scenic drive through the Appalachian Mountains. Marvel at Georgia’s lush countryside as you find your own path to discovery.

Neighbourhoods and Beaches

The city's southern charm is reflected in its quaint and quiet neighbourhoods. One standout is the Historic District, filled with 19th-century homes. For a beach break, make a 4-hour drive to the stunning Savannah Beach for a fantastic coastal adventure.

The Climate

Columbus enjoys a mild and temperate climate. The summer heat can reach up to 33°C, whilst winter averages at around 12°C. Remember, the US uses Fahrenheit, unlike the Celsius scale in the UK.

Currency

The US uses the Dollar ($), and whilst credit cards are widely accepted, it’s always handy to have a bit of cash as some places won't accept cards for small amounts.

Last But Not Least

The soulful southern hospitality is what truly sets Columbus apart. So, gear up, pack your bags, and we promise you, the heart-warming city of Columbus, Georgia awaits you with open arms.
