Capital of Southern Hospitality
A compact capital with stately southern history, Columbia serves as a symbol of the south. The city boasts two historical neighborhoods with streets bordered by pre-Civil War homes adorned with large patios and balconies. The Hampton and Elmwood Park neighborhoods both exhibit this architecture. For a city of around 200,000, it is packed with performing and literary arts venues. The city also has many parks. With our international travel planner, United States vacations can be built around trips to Columbia and other destinations in United States.
