Steeped in history and character, the old Mississippi town of Columbus has a special and distinct Southern charm.
Established in 1821, Columbus boasts broad, tree lined streets and wide sidewalks to enjoy an evening stroll in the warm afternoon sunshine or to browse the stalls of the farmers markets held regularly. Beyond the Main Street, spacious lawns invite guests to lavish Victorian homes and B&Bs.
You can definitely feel the strong sense of community in Columbus. Locals come together for town events such as the farmers' market held in the quaint Main Street. Stall holders welcome children to join in the fun, to learn about local produce and to choose fresh fruit and vegetables themselves. The community also unites in various activities throughout the year on the Tenn-Tomm Waterway, which connects the Tennessee River to the junction of the Back Warrior- Tombigbee River system. Throughout the year, you will find families and friends utilizing the man-made waterway and enjoying the activities that it provides.
