Fortson is a rural community that lies just outside of Columbus. Thanks to their proximity to the city, homes for rent in Fortson may appeal to those seeking leisure or employment in an urban center while choosing to live in a more spacious area outside of town.
Standing Boy Creek State Park, situated on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, is a short ride away from Fortson. The park covers close to 1,600 acres and supports a number of activities, such as hiking, swimming and camping. Visitors can also engage in fishing and boating. South of the park and approximately 20 minutes from Fortson rentals, Columbus offers opportunities to experience local history and culture. Renters can experience a piece of America's musical past at the Liberty Theatre. The theater has hosted famous artists such as Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald and continues to put on musical and theatrical performances. Warships and other artifacts from Confederate naval history are available for visitors to see at The National Civil War Naval Museum.
