Top Ten Best Small Town by Southern Living

Columbia, TN voted a Top Ten "Best Small Town" by Southern Living! Come see us and you'll know why.

We wish you were here visiting us today. But we know that in these uncertain times, we are all thinking about how to stay safe and healthy so that means staying at home. We hope you'll take care of yourself and come see us when the COVID-19 crisis is no longer a global threat. 


For travelers and experience-seekers looking for a true Main-Street-America experience, Columbia is 45 miles south of Nashville, Tennessee and 75 miles north of Huntsville, Alabama with a vibrant, historic town square and Main Street that's got great shopping, cool restaurants and a live music scene. The new Columbia Arts District adjacent to downtown will captivate you with their local, funky, creative artists and makers.

Our community pride and Southern hospitality run deep. Some call us ‘Muletown’ for the long-standing tradition of Mule Day, an annual April celebration going on since the 1930's. Our history is pretty amazing,’s here you’ll discover the ancestral home of U.S. President James K. Polk.  

So come on over, you're welcome here! We hope you'll be enchanted by our city and feel connected to the stories, experiences, and people of Columbia that make us...The Classic Southern Town with a Kick.
