Travel Tips for Columbia

Great events year-round

by acemj

Finlay Park is also a great venue for city events. There is an annual Easter sunrise service here, along with countless festivals, road races and many other events. The weekend that Nat and I were here in March, there was a great family-friendly event going on. Kid's Day brought in the crowds and everybody seemed to be having a great time.

Tour the State House

by acemj

Touring the inside of the State House is free, but there is a schedule. You'll see signs on the outside of the building that direct you to the entry door where the tour begins. Just check in with the security guards (they were really friendly when we were there) and they'll let you know when the next tour begins.

You'll start by watching a good video that tells all about the history and construction of the building and then you'll be turned loose on the building where you are free to stroll around and take photos of the beautiful interior. The video truly helps you appreciate the details and history of what you'll encounter.

SC Supreme Court

by acemj

Just across Gervais Street from the State House is the South Carolina Supreme Court building. I'm not sure about visiting the building or what landmark cases were decided here, but the building is attractive with its Greek columns and white stone.

b1bob's non-PC Columbia adventures

by b1bob

Soon after the Revolutionary War, the South Carolina legislature decided to move the capital in a more central location in the state, halfway between the coast and the up country. They wanted also to symbolise the new beginning by moving away from an aristocratic city named for British royalty to one named for the discoverer of America. In February, 1865, General Sherman's troops burnt the majority of Columbia except the State House, built on high ground above the Congaree River. The biggest industries in the city are state government, the university and the military (Fort Jackson is just east of the city). The most prominent private employers are insurance and banking.

I got a favourable impression of Columbia literally straightaway on emerging from the car. A gentleman walking down the street made a point to greet this total stranger on his first trip ever to Columbia. The image carried throughout the day carried as locals bent over backwards to be nice to Mark and me. Wait staff in restaurants and bars are paid to be courteous, but the ones we ran across went above the normal requirements of duty.

Mark and I went on 27 March 2004, a perfectly sunny and abnormally warm day for that time of year. We toured the State House grounds, downtown, the university campus, and Finlay Park for Children's Day which included all kinds of entertainment for the young'uns and a fun fair.
