Columbus, GA
May 9-10, 2019

Join us on May 9th and 10th, 2019 for an enjoyable visit to Columbus, GA. Visting the Confederate Naval Museum, the Springer Opera House and Ft Benning, this is a fabulous bespoke trip.

We plan on leaving by motor coach (with bathroom) for the approximately three hour drive to Columbus, GA. We will have a short stop enroute going and returning. We will have lunch in Columbus and then visit the Confederate Naval Museum. Who knew there was a Confederate ship which was sunk in the Chattahoochee River near Columbus? That ship has been recovered and is on display at the museum. We will have a guided tour with a docent.

After visiting the museum we will drive to our hotel, the Best Western and get checked in and then dinner on our own down town Columbus (a list of restaurants will be provided) and head to the Springer Opera House NLT 645PM where we will see the presentation “The Million Dollar Quartet”, celebrating the music of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. We will have time to visit a bit of the theatre prior to the show.

The next morning we will have breakfast at the hotel at 715AM, with luck attend an Army graduation program near Ft. Benning and then visit the National Infantry Museum. The museum has a collection of some 70,000 artifacts and a recreation of an army WWII “Company Street”. We hope to visit both, but certainly the Infantry Museum has an amazing collection. In the afternoon we will stop for lunch and then head back to Athens arriving about 530PM.

Cost is $270 with double occupancy, $326 with single occupancy. Register here.
