A good road trip follows a set of proven rules. Back roads are always more scenic than through roads, food tastes better when it comes from a brightly colored cabin, and braking for roadside attractions is a must.
Columbia County is tailor-made for a country road trip filled with quirky stops, especially the artistic variety. Most people are familiar with the area’s largest sculpture park, the Art Omi Outdoor Sculpture Park, but with over 100 acres to explore and five kilometers of walking trails, this is a destination in itself. Several smaller parks and attractions also capture the chimerical pursuit of creativity, in bite-sized packaging that leaves time for extra visits or to relax with a craft beer or cider. For a weird, wacky, and wonderful day trip, follow this guide.
