Minutes from Everything
You’re just minutes away from a vibrant and rapidly evolving downtown. Grab a coffee, enjoy our buzzing food scene, or check out our indie theater. Plus, Columbia also has an exciting outdoor scene—with a river, lake, and national park near our city center.
Something new every weekend, in every season
Columbia is a college town with a never-ending roster of festivals, concerts, and sporting events. We're home to annual gatherings like the Greek Festival, Oyster Festival, and Gervais Street Bridge dinner party.
