Columbus in Hill Country is inhabited by some 4,000 people.
The city is located some 80 miles (129 kilometers) from the state capital of Texas, Austin and about 70 miles (113 kilometers) from Houston.
There’s no excuse to neglect your game when staying in Columbus; visit Hallettsville Golf Course, home to the most challenging fairways in the area. Get outfitted in the pro shop, and challenge the course average, then finish the day in the clubhouse sharing stories with friendly locals.
Travel through time with a visit to the Lavaca Historical Museum, one of the main historical museums. Stroll through the collection’s peaceful corridors and view the ancient artifacts on display.
Columbus’s major attractions sometimes overshadow the city’s less visited, but equally rewarding sights such as the Vietnam Veterans Monument.
