4 Ways to Give Kids the Ultimate Educational Adventure

February 13, 2016

Are you looking for ways to show your kids a good time, and teach them something while you’re at it? Families who buy homes in Columbus GA discover that the city has several attractions that focus on science, nature and history. Whether you homeschool or just want to turn a fun weekend into the ultimate educational adventure, here are a few places to consider for your next outing.

Coca-Cola Science Center – This is the perfect place to spark your child’s interest in science. The facility houses several interactive galleries, the Challenger Learning Center mission simulator, an observatory and Omnisphere Planetarium Theater. You’ll also find Georgia’s most extensive Space Shuttle artifact collection.

Oxbow Meadows – Nature and animal lovers will be delighted with a visit to this environmental learning center. There are opportunities to see turtles, snakes (including a python!), alligators, tortoises and more. Be sure to pick up the Discovery Trail Guide at the front desk to extend the learning opportunities of your visit. Admission is free, but donations are welcomed.

National Infantry Museum – The only museum in the nation dedicated to the American infantryman, this institution holds one of the greatest collections of military artifacts, tracing infantry history from colonial times to the present. If your time is limited, don’t miss the Last 100 Yards Ramp which provides a heart-wrenching overview of the U.S. Army’s history. Little ones can try on Soldier uniforms and learn about the humanitarian missions our soldiers carry out. Visit the museum website to find out about the free family events that take place year ‘round.

WhiteWater Express – Treat your family to the ultimate outdoor adventure with a white water rafting experience down the Chattahoochee. The company also offers bike rentals and other ways to explore Columbus. Learn more at
