Moving to Columbus, GA-A Charming Military Town

If for some reason you have found yourself with plans of moving to Columbus, GA in the coming months, you are in the right place to get a cursory overview of the area as well as a few moving tips.  Columbus, GA is located about 100 miles south of Atlanta on the border of Georgia and Alabama which is formed by the Chattahoochee River.  With a population of nearly 190,000 residents, it is the third largest city in Georgia, and it is part of a combined statistical area that has an estimated population of over 450,000 residents. 

The U.S. Army operates a very large base near Columbus that is also quite influential on the economy and lifestyle of the city and surrounding area.  Fort Benning-which was built in 1918-brings a rich military heritage into the city's history, as well as what is to come of present day Columbus, GA.  In fact, if you are moving to Columbus, GA now, you will be joining an additional 30,000 soldiers slated to be funneled into Fort Benning as part of a government realignment of military bases in the southeast.

The population in Columbus within the next few years is expected to be significantly impacted by this development.  Despite the size and clout of this military base, however, Columbus maintains a respectable, southern-traditional identity in Georgia with a town motto that urges residents and visitors to discover the charm of Columbus-"What Progress Has Preserved."  Columbus is truly a great, livable city, and you are sure to have fun exploring your new habitat.
