Columbia is known as a mid-sized Capital City where you’ll find seven distinct districts with thriving communities. Located in the heart of SC, Columbia is a two-hour drive from mountain peaks or beachfront views. From year-round markets and football traditions starting at the University of South Carolina to walks along our three main rivers, Columbia is a hub of local culture fed by a rich history + small businesses. Soda Citizens — a play on Columbia’s nickname Cola — will always remember hot summers and strong local pride.
