Columbus, Mississippi, is the home of playwright Tennessee Williams, winner of the Pulitzer Prize. He was born there and his childhood home is visited. It is today the tourist center of the city. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by a street lined with magnificent historic houses that will invite you in the most beautiful way to discover a culture and a history of the most alive. From its grand interiors to its large spaces, Columbus welcomes you with elegance. In the beautiful canal, even the fish with sparkling scales spread their splendor when they split the brightness of the waters. But what about the food served at Columbus restaurants? Expect culinary creations rewarded for their excellence.
Nicknamed “the city that has everything for her” in the South, Columbus promises a well-filled stay and an incredible choice of accommodations, especially historic guest rooms. The city and its inhabitants have always been known for their kindness and hospitality. In fact, many historians believe that Memorial Day, a holiday honoring fallen American soldiers, would have been born here when the Columbus women generously decorated the graves of Union soldiers like those of the Army Confederate States, a few days after the end of the American Civil War. Today, at the cemetery of friendship, an evocative name if there is one, it may be that an “apparition” of the past greets you, at least if you come during the festivities of the spring pilgrimage.
