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

Stores are in the area and some restaurants greyhound bus is here the rent is not foolish but most of all it's in Abad area but nothing has happened since I be been here

It's close to stores and restaurants. I love that it's close to the public library. Good schools are within walking distance.

Nice elderly people. Grocery stores close and like to take my mom to her likable restaurant. There's not much to do other than that.

It is near food places. My favorite local businesses are burger king and circle k. I like going to the lake and park with my family and friends.
