Working in Columbus
Columbus is an area where people can live without having to worry about a lot of dramatic stuff on the streets. Its nothing like Milwaukee, and its a small town so everyone knows everyone. There isn't much for retail and stores, so you have to drive somewhere for retail stores, but over all it is a quaint little town with friendly people.
It's a great town for growing families, and it has a very tight knit community. The only down side is the lack of activities and events in the area. However, towns nearby can offer you those amenities.
Some things that I like about Columbus is the fact that it is very safe and a nice small community to live in. The town is very safe and always has been. Some things that I would personally change is the mentality of the town. It seems as though no change has been made in the years I have lived here
