Typical Middle TN Small City, Sort Of 3 rating By FrasierID ( Oct 15, 2019) Most of Middle Tennessee is lovely, deriving a lot of energy from a strong, growing Nashville while maintaining a great deal of local charm. However, Columbia appears to be a bit rougher, with more crime, than most Middle Tennessee communities. Not really a lot going on there. It ...Read More 's mostly ok for longtime locals we know, but you might want to look hard before moving there. You might want to look at other Middle TN communities first. Read Less
Calm Columbia! 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 14, 2018) Columbia, Tennessee is a very nice place to live or even visit. With miles and miles of open road, livestock, and beautiful country fields; you will feel very much at ease. The weather is also perfect for farming with plenty of rain and sunshine throughout the months. In winter, ...Read More they may be snow but nothing harsh and unbearable. With much land around, this means there are few shopping centers and entertainment places located nearby. This also brings the cost of living down and much more affordable for the average household.
On the other hand, education and crime are higher than usual and employment opportunities are very scarce. This is a result of farmers using lots of land for miles.
I have stayed in Columbia, Tennessee for only a few years and I really seem to enjoy the nice weather and privacy you get. It is very quite and secluded than most and many of the residents there are very private and also respectful! Read Less
