Not the same city it once was - 12/29/2019
Columbus used to be a great city, not so much anymore. The crime is out of control and there seem to be more people on government aid than not. The undesirables have destroyed what was once a beautiful, safe city. Read More

Columbus ga is a nice place to live - 3/24/2019
Columbus is a nice town. I have lived here my whole life. We are 1 1/2 hours from Atlanta and 3 1/2 hours from Florida. Which is great for short weekend getaways. .
We have a great downtown area with nice restaurants and nightlife...
I have been pleased with our public schools..CSU is a great university.
We also have good shopping. The people here are friendly too. I love living Read More

Crime central - 8/29/2017
This is the worst city I have ever lived in. The crime here is unbelievable! We moved to a neighborhood that was supposed to be in a nicer and safe section of town, but burglaries happen weekly. The police department is severely understaffed and the mayor appears to be completely unconcerned with the high crime rate. There is an urban whitewater place here, but what they don't tell you is its in a part of the Chattahoochee River that is known for strong undercurrents causing numerous deaths from way back. What they also don't tell you is that here, the Chattahoochee is known to be contaminated with sewage overflow from Atlanta.

Not unlike most midsize cities in the South - 1/7/2014
Columbus is an interesting place in that it has some very unique qualities, but on the whole is your typical midsize Southern city in it's size range. This ended up being a lot longer than I anticipated, so I apologize for the length. I also didn't really proofread it so it may not make sense. Please comment if you have any questions or suggestions.


One of the big unique qualities is that there are a few large public companies founded and headquartered in Columbus, the most recognizable being Aflac (stock ticker AFL). Also Total Systems Services or TSYS (TSS), and Synovus Financial (SNV) were all founded in Columbus and employ a sizable portion of the middle to upper class. Carmike Cinemas (CKEC) is also headquartered there. Also, the original Coca-Cola was invented in Columbus by Dr. John Pemberton, and the W.C. Bradley Company and it's related families as well as the Woodruff family made boatloads of money after leading the Read More

Armpit of America - 10/29/2012
Columbus is by far the worst place I have ever lived in my life. Or visited for that matter. Not only are the schools a joke and completely unorganized, but the town is a trash hole. The people are backwards and small minded. Many people are racist. I have been assaulted by black people because I am white. I am used to being friends with black people, so this has been an adjustment. The parks are inadequate, there is not culture, and the community is not close knit but full of hatred. I would probably say that 50 percent of the people here are as trashy as the town itself. Cannot wait for my husband to be stationed elsewhere.

Watch out for the car with the license plate 2cent. They are racist and will assault you. Also, if you live in North Columbus, your car or house will probably be robbed; if not, at the very least, people from South Columbus will steal your Read More
