As the center of government, the location of a major university, and home to a lively and historic downtown, Columbia is a busy place. The mature trees, colorful blooms, and wide sidewalks remind you – this is the south. Downtown Columbia wraps around the University of South Carolina, and during football season, you’ll find many residents at Williams-Brice Stadium cheering on the Gamecocks football team. During basketball season, they’re at Colonial Life Arena, which also hosts concerts and other special events.

Downtown Columbia sits along the Congaree River, a beautiful area featuring several parks and the 3 Rivers Greenway. Beautiful Granby Park offers river views, camping, a disc golf course, fishing areas, and trails for hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. When you aren’t enjoying natural beauty, the Columbia Museum of Art features several world-class art collections so you can marvel at manmade beauty.

With a history dating back to 1786, Columbia’s location along the river helped the settlement become one of the most important regions in the state. After moving to your Columbia apartment, be sure to visit the Hale-Elmore-Seibels House, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is considered one of the oldest buildings in Columbia, dating back to the 1790s. The house is a museum and the headquarters of the Historic Columbia Foundation.

Here’s a fun fact about your new home: the streets in Downtown Columbia are unusually wide. This is because, back in the late 1700s when the town was being developed, it was believed that mosquitoes could only fly about 60 feet before dying of starvation, so town founders made sure the streets were 150 feet wide to keep the mosquitoes away. The original state house, built in 1786, was burned by Sherman’s troops during the Civil War in 1865. A monument marks the site. To learn more about Columbia’s fascinating history, be sure to visit the South Carolina State Museum, the largest museum in South Carolina. In addition to roughly 70,000 artifacts, the museum contains an interactive theater, an observatory, and a planetarium.
