    Favorite thing: Phenix City is a decent sized town of about 33,000 (up 17% since 2000) located just across the border from Columbus, Georgia. For a number of years, starting in the 1940s and continuing until probably the 60s, Phenix City was known as a "sin city" as a center for drugs, gambling and prostitution catering to the infantry soldiers from nearby Fort Benning. This reputation has proven very hard to get rid of, and many still consider Phenix City a slum area associated with Columbus, Georgia. Indeed the area looks a lot less prosperous but I think the town is not being given its due. Phenix City has a decent area on the waterfront and is working on improvements. I will return one day soon to explore a bit more.

    Fondest memory: The waterfront amphitheater
