This Week: Southern Rivers North (Columbus)

On this week's episode of Georgia Traveler, it's off to Georgia's Southern Rivers region. Columbus is our destination city, where we visit the Chattahoochee River Walk, the Columbus Museum, and the Wild Animal Safari in nearby Pine Mountain. We enjoy the delights of Georgia's Official Barbecue Cooking Contest at the Big Pig Jig in Vienna. Gerald Bryant explores the sometimes ghostly Springer Opera House and the National Civil War Naval Museum. David Zelski takes a ride on the SAM Shortline through Cordele, Leslie, Plains, Archery and Americus. And Phil Proctor finds a Columbus food favorite, Lieutenant's Scrambled Dog..
