Columbus is a historical city, with many older homes ranging from 30 to 100 years old. Several of these homes and areas have undergone restoration and neighborhood improvements. Our downtown has maintained its aesthetic appeal because of improvements, and ever changing and updating. There are major projects either under construction or planned, including the Indigo Hotel which recently opened its doors to travellers.
Columbus has a number of man made lakes, ponds and natural lakes within the city and just on the outskirts of town, and within 10 miles of Columbus. Fifteen of these lakes are the focal point of housing developments. They enhance the natural beauty, add scenic views, create water-sports havens, and are easily accessible.
