Whether you have family of your own here already or looking to establish yours here, this is an ideal place to raise children and put down roots.

- Community Growth
If you haven’t been to Columbus in the last five or so years, you may not even recognize it! Our community is growing at an amazing pace. Just take a drive down 38th Street and you’ll see a brand new high school, doctors’ offices, YMCA, childcare facility and expanded hospital. And that’s just the beginning of what we’ve got planned for the future!
Classified as a “micropolitan” community, we’re not too big, not too small. This is place where you can still walk into the grocery store and see someone you know, but big enough to have all the amenities you’ll need or want for daily living. And with Lincoln and Omaha both an easy drive away for the occasional outing, you’ll never run out of things to see or do!
Families in the Columbus area are blessed to have top-ranked educational options in both public and parochial education for student K-12, as well as incredible post-secondary education opportunities at Central Community College-Columbus. Learn more about our schools
- Parks & Recreation
From running and biking, to hunting and fishing, our recreation opportunities are unmatched. In fact Columbus has more than 400 acres of public parks–more than many communities twice our size! Learn more about our recreation
