Explore Columbia!

As the Palmetto State’s capital and a college town, Columbia’s fiery vibe cultivates a colorful arts scene while an indie spirit envelops several energized entertainment districts overflowing with locally owned boutique shops, eateries, spas and salons, and night spots.  Area attractions include Lake Murray, rivers, parks, gardens and the Riverbanks Zoo – one of the best in the country; the University of South Carolina and Fort Jackson. History abounds and is celebrated in museums, historic homes and even in repurposed buildings with a new start as shops and restaurants.
