The Columbia at Dock

Docked in Fowler's Harbor, the majestic Columbia serves as a beautiful reminder of our country's history in exploration.  Built as a full scale replica of the first American ship to sail around the world, the Columbia is a testament to the early days of our country, back when the West was quite unexplored, and life much simpler and more rugged.  The ship has a museum below deck, and it offers a more adventurous feel around the Rivers of America compared to the Mark Twain.  And at night, after it's finished sailing, it sure is nice, moored up next to New Orlean's Square!

The Columbia is docked in peaceful waters after a long day of service.
