Columbus Travel Guide

Are you ready for a vacation which is full of amazing museums, heritage sites, and historical landmarks? If you love these activities then Columbus, Georgia, is an excellent location for your next trip. Columbus is a large city that lies between Phenix City and Atlanta. The Columbus area was occupied by native tribes for centuries and it was founded as a city in 1828. The Chattahoochee River flows through the city, which served as Columbus’ connection to the world. The city was an important commercial trade route since the 1850s as the river allowed ships to smoothly move in and out of the city. Cotton plantations were popular in the area and the ships moved the cotton crops to New Orleans. The city started to bloom and various industries developed alongside the river. The city takes great pride in its historical heritage.

  • — I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
