I'm sorry this dude from Columbus wants his city to bigger than what it is. The population of a city has NOTHING to do with the feel of it. I've said it before, Rome and Columbus both have the same feel even though Columbus is much larger than Rome. NO ONE outside of Columbus sees that city as large metropolitan area in GA. When people think of one outside of Atlanta, most think of Savannah, Macon, and some even Augusta. Growing up my mother hated the city, but had no problem living in Columbus. To this day it does not have much of city/urban feel to it. Which is not a bad thing!

The way that columbus is building I'd expect them to have a downtown expressway and at least some highrises by now... but I heard some things are going on where they cant do that. hopefully these so called highrise condos will stretch toward J.R. allen freeway the future I-14 so the can have some highrise near the expressway to make the city seem like something more than a military city

I'm from Georgia and lived in Rome and Columbus but to say Columbus feel like Rome is going too far. Rome feels like it's piers such as Dalton, Gainesville, and Hinesville.

Columbus while it's bigger than Macon and Savannah may feel smaller but it feels much bigger than Rome. I would put Columbus between Macon and Albany honestly because it feels faster than Albany but slower than Macon.

There is nothing fast about any of GA's 2nd tier cities. Once you get off of I-75, Macon is a slow, sleepy town. I was just off Zebulon Road yesterday.

Was all over Macon that day. Yes, it is a small, sleepy town once you get off of the interstates. Just stating the facts.

Not counting the interstates, venture off in Macon unto 2nd Street, Broadway, MLK, Eisenhower, Mercer Univ. Dr, Pio Nono, Riverside Dr, Gray Hwy, Shurling Dr, etc....if these roads and highways are characteristic of a "sleepy little town" then what do you think Victory Dr, Manchester Expy, Veterans, etc. in Columbus are in comparison? Super Highways??? LOL.

Face it. Everyone in here other than people from Columbus said it feels slower than Macon and the other second tier GA cities. This guy even said Tallahassee doesnt feel larger than Columbus. I suppose Columbus' peers are Charleston, Columbia or maybe even Jacksonville and Charlotte. What a joke.

I give up, I'm not sure what these guys from Columbus are smoking; I guess Next they will be saying Columbus is a mirror city of Columbus Ohio; there is no telling what these guys will say next.....
