Longest Destination Description

In the heart of South Carolina, tradition and tomorrow pair perfectly in Columbia. It’s a modern city where stately buildings buzz with new businesses, and centuries-old sites give rise to fresh perspectives. It’s got all the gracious charm you’d expect from a Southern destination – nothing saccharine, just good old-fashioned kindness. As home to both the state’s capital and its largest university, it’s a vibrant city and creative hub that’s bursting with big ideas, forward thinkers and modern attitudes. With dynamite shopping, food and tons to see and do year round, it’s the real Southern hot spot. It doesn’t take long to get from the middle of town to what seems like the middle of nowhere with the Saluda, Broad and Congaree Rivers running right through town. Yet it’s manageable without the headaches and hassles common to many other larger cities. With evidence of renewal everywhere, Columbia SC will leave you looking forward to what’s next.
