Columbus

The Discovery City

More than just one of the nation's top business centers, Columbus is a mixture of many different parts of America, situated at the spot where the so-called "Bible Belt" meets the varied cultures of the Great Plains and Appalachia.
Get out of town with these interesting Columbus side-trips: Dayton (Dayton National Cemetery, National Museum of the US Air Force, &more), Rockhouse (in Logan) and Zipline (in Rockbridge). Next up on the itinerary: sample some tasty brews at Pedal Wagon Columbus, appreciate the extensive heritage of German Village, let your taste buds guide you at Columbus Food Adventures, and examine the collection at Wagner-Hagans Auto Museum.

To find maps, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Columbus tour itinerary builder.
