Aerospace Medicine Physician
Hunting, Fishing, Outdoors, Hiking, Water Sports, College Sports, Southern Hospitality, Low Cost of Living - We've got it all.

The Community - Columbus, MS
If you love the outdoors, then you've come to the right place in Columbus, MS. We have some of the best deer and turkey hunting around. If you like fishing then you'll be glad to know Columbus hosts many large professional bass tournaments every year. Even if you're not a pro, you're sure to get a bite on the Tenn-Tom Waterway. The Tenn-Tom is also a great place to water ski or Jet Ski and is a popular place to spend a warm summer afternoon. For the golfers, there are six courses within thirty minutes of Columbus, including Old Waverly, which was voted one of the top 100 courses in the United States. If you prefer watching rather than playing sports, we've got you covered there as well. Mississippi State University is right down the road; you can catch some of the best college sports in the country as the Bulldogs battle it out in the tough Southeastern Conference.

As you can see, we've got something for everyone. Perhaps what we've got the most of is Southern hospitality. A low cost of living paired with everything mentioned above makes Columbus a great place to raise a family or a popular retirement town as well.
