Local Reviews

My backyard, the close shops, the TINY house payment. We have owned this house forever and it is all we can afford.

It's safe , that's unique if you are in Columbus , ga . Fav restaurant is 'El Carrizo ' I like going to Atlanta with family and friends

It's convenient to main highways to take to get anywhere in the city. It's the neighborhood that I grew up in.

A lot of military residents. There is no night clubs. Restaurants closes relatively early. Most of the dwellings are within communities and neighbors look out for one another

Our neighborhood is close to lots of places that we frequent. It is centrally located for almost everything we do.

Restaurants and shops they have a very good restaurant I like but is the same food over and over again, I like to try kew things
