Columbus, Texas
Known for its Republic-era historic homes, abundance of majestic live oak trees and timeless beauty, Columbus, Texas, is a vibrant small town at the crossroads of Houston, Austin and San Antonio. The oldest platted Anglo-American town in Texas, first settled in 1821, Columbus today is a relaxing getaway that has retained its charm and natural beauty while embracing modern amenities for today’s traveler.
Nature surrounds the town. With the Colorado River hugging Columbus, visitors have the opportunity to kayak, canoe or take an airboat ride. They can enjoy beautiful oak trees so large it takes several people interlocked to wrap around a single trunk. In fact, Columbus is home to the largest, registered Live Oak in the state.
Both General Sam Houston and Mexican General Santa Anna passed through Beason’s Park on the Colorado River on their way to San Jacinto, the location of what became the decisive battle in the Texas War for Independence in 1836. For more of the historic, visit the beautifully restored Colorado County Courthouse and the Stafford Opera House, both on the Downtown Square. The War Memorial Museum, originally built in 1883 as the city’s water tower, is dedicated to veterans of all wars, and children, both young and old, will want to see the Mary Elizabeth Hopkins Santa Claus Museum.
Offerings of clothing, décor, antiques, crafts and homemade chocolates are sure to lure visitors into the local shops and boutiques, where it is difficult to pass up an opportunity to make a purchase. Local restaurants offer an array of options, including homestyle flavor, Mexican food or a hearty steak. If visitors need a little wind-down time with a good drink, the local sports bar will fill their spirits, or the nearby wine bar features an extensive menu of both beer and wine from all over the globe, a delicious selection of gourmet small plates and live music.
A variety of exciting events are held annually in Columbus, including Magnolia Days on the third weekend of May, the Independence Day celebration on the Fourth of July, and Ladies Night Out on the first Thursday of December, when more than 1,000 women (and men) descend upon downtown Columbus for food, fun, shopping and wine.
