What travelers to Columbus are saying

I am a country boy at heart, so I am not overly fond of cities as a rule. However, that being said, I found Columbus to be a very nice place to visit and, if necessary, I believe that I could even enjoy living there,
Gary M. Aug 22, 2015
A typical southern town, with suburbs and all that. Lots of strip malls, car dealerships, etc.
Robert C. Jul 11, 2015
I was born in Columbus. Just not that much to do.
