Columbus Mississippi Travel Guide

With its location almost equidistant from Memphis, Birmingham and Jackson, Columbus is one of those cities which defies description. Even choosing from the various Columbus, Mississippi hotels might seem a chore without OneTravelSource! On one hand, the city is located deep in the heart of the south, so life can seem slow and easy.Main Street Sign On the other hand, it was home to famed Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tennessee Williams, who derived much of his incredible material from his own life. It would seem that Columbus just might be more interesting than first imagined!

The various Columbus, MS hotels are easily accessible, whether you drive to Columbus or book an affordable flight into Golden Triangle Regional Airport (GTR). You will find that much of this small city is based around its Main Street, which was recently named a winner of the Great American Main Street Awards. Columbus has worked hard to preserve its history and heritage, and it shows! Look for farmers’ markets, a Christmas Parade and more. The Tennessee Williams home, a National Literary Landmark, doubles as the Welcome Center where visitors can get acquainted with the city.

Tombigbee Bridge on Tenn-Tom Waterway Columbus Mississippi USAThe 1.25 mile Columbus Riverwalk attracts many locals and visitors to its meandering pathway. The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway’s setting is beautiful and offers walking, biking and jogging opportunities as expansion continues. The Tenn-Tom Waterway is also known for its superb bass fishing, a popular local pursuit. Additionally, Lake Lowndes State Park’s 150-acre lake offers recreational facilities for camping, fishing, hiking nature trails, picnic pavilions and more.

The Columbus Air Force Base provides another focal point for this community, training pilots and airmen. The Mississippi University for Women’s campus is located in Columbus and offers a variety of degrees along with four graduate programs to women and men. Mississippi State University is in Starkville, MS and is less than a half hour away. This school competes in the SEC, so athletic contests are well-attended. Lucky for those sports’ attendees who simply need a place to sleep after the game, Columbus supplies a variety of hotels with cheap prices throughout the year.

The Annual Spring Pilgrimage, held for the last 70 years, is possibly the most anticipated event of the year. Plan to enjoy walking tours of historic homes, gardens and churches, music, food and carriage rides. There is also a 10K race.

Amzi Love Home is a must see when visiting Columbus. This home has remained in the same family for seven generations and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Another popular Columbus attraction is the Old Waverly Golf Club, named one of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses. 

You might have thought there would be nothing to do in Columbus besides watching time go by. You would be wrong – plan your visit with OneTravelSource today.
