True, Benning is much larger in population, but importance? Both bases are equally important.

There you go again adding statements in about Columbus is out building other 2nd tier cities..... Which you are wrong "RIGHT NOW" Macon has over 4 million sq ft of retail, mix-used and commercial developments under construction right now in North Macon along... and over 2 million under construction in south Macon/Bibb county @ Hartley bridge Rd/I-75/475........ And it you want proof check out my forum called "Development from DT to north Macon".... STOP TRYING TO BOOST COLUMBUS......... need more i can prove it.....

For a city to "get things done" it sure does feel sleepy and dull around there, it needs to "get something done" to fix that before I even call the town of Columbus a city. Cities dont feel that way when you're in them.

I'm from Atlanta and now live in Columbus. It doesn't seem sleepy to me. Not sure where you are going, but apparently you haven't been out on the weekends.

Not trying to argue or anything, but there's really not that much difference between the two, Macon has more traffic going thru, the Columbus government seems to have a sense of direction. Also, in South Columbus, there's some much development going alone Victory Dr and near the interstate.

Also, Macon doesn't feel more of a city either, it just has more traffic.


The quality of life in Columbus is lightyears of ahead of Macon. One can't help but notice.

I agree with you about the quality of life in Columbus. It seems to me that you gave your opinion about Macon and some immature people starts to post bashful things about Columbus. If you like Columbus better, that's certainly fine because from what I read about the two...the only one thing people can say about Columbus is that "it's sleepy"......I've been to both and i'd rather live in Columbus too but that's just me.

P.S. Now watch and see where this goes!!

It's funny. The people in Macon wants their town to sound so important. Lansinggirl09 just stated that she like Columbus and you hear comments about how Columbus feels like a surburb and Macon feels like a city...Obviously these people never been to a real city. Macon is no more city than Columbus and if it was.....what's the point?


Detriot feels more of a city than Columbus also, but which one will I rather LIVE in? Columbus for sure

why? because the quality of life.....

I see claims about an enviable quality of life in Columbus, but see nothing about why it's wonderful except the mention of a mall. Some say it is an outdoor mall and others seem to be saying that that description is stretching the truth in a favorable dimension, but to my way of thinking there's more to making a great quality of life than a mall.

So for those of us who are considering Columbus, tell us what makes the quality of life so good there. Most of the talk on this thread borders on "mine is bigger than yours," which isn't particularly helpful or informative.

What is the state of the arts in Columbus? How much art, architecture, dance and music is to be found there? Is there an emphasis on art in the schools or just one musty dead museum stuck in a side street somewhere?

How about food culture? Is there a variety of ethnic cuisines, classical cuisine, new American and traditional southern home cooking? Are high quality, fresh ingredients readily available for home cooking? And if I need bulghur wheat to make tabouleh or some oxtail to braise, am I going to have to mail order it or drive to Atlanta to buy it?

What is the environment like? Do the people value clean water and air? Is curbside recycling available? Are there good venues for outdoor activities like fishing, water skiing, climbing, hiking, camping?


Tell us about employment, the cost of living, cultural opportunities, sports and entertainment. "Nanny, nanny, nanny, my town is better" isn't helpful.
