Discover Columbus, Indiana

Second Street Bridge, Columbus, Ind. (photo by Gregory Boege)Columbus, Indiana, has only 44,000 residents, but it's famous around the United States and the world because of its huge collection of modern architecture and public art. The fabulous churches, homes, and public buildings found in this small town have been written about in USA Today, Smithsonian Magazine, and National Geographic.

Even if you don’t know an Eero Saarinen from an I.M. Pei, you will be amazed by how many works reside in one small space. And you'll be inspired by the story of how one small town put itself on the map of the art world.

(photo by Don Nissen)Using a self-guided tour map, which has color photos of the architecture and art, you can drive around at your leisure or take a self-guided cell phone tour, which highlights 10 of the most important structures in Columbus. Either way, you don't have to worry about adding too much mileage to your vehicle, because they're all in such a concentrated area.

The best way to see everything, however, is on the Columbus Visitors Center tour bus, where you receive knowledgeable commentary and get to go inside two of the buildings.

The two-hour bus tour costs $20. Reserve your spot on a desired date by calling (866) 811-4111. If you have 18 or more in your party, call (800) 468-6564.

Columbus is also home to Ceraland, a popular park run by the Cummins Employees Recreation Association that extends use and RV camping privileges to FMCA members (888-733-2372, www.ceraland.org).
