Travel Tips for Columbia

The Eastern Towhee

by zrim

Becky has turned me into something of a bird fanatic. I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting birds. Now that I have my digital camera I can take lots of shots without worrying about the price of developing film. I've found that it can be exceptionally difficult to get a photo of a bird where you can see its face.

Someday I hope to have a photo collection of birds that numbers in the hundreds.

Waffle anyone?

by shohman

you can't go 1 mile without seeing a Waffle House here. I must admit, I've only been to one in my life, and wasn't happy, but the people here must love them. I'm guessing the waffles are a big seller.

A South Carolina icon

by acemj

Strom Thurmond was born in 1902 and served in the United States Senate from 1954 to 2003!! Think about that. This guy cast over 15,000 votes. I wonder if anyone else in the history of the U.S. had more impact on laws and public policy that this guy.

He also served as an educator, practiced law, was a state senator, served in World War II and was Governor of South Carolina prior to his career in the U.S. Senate.

He was well-known for his segregationist stance during the era of Jim Crow (laws which helped support racial segregation). Ironically, just before his death, Essie Mae Washington-Williams publicly revealed that she was Strom Thurmond's illegitimate daughter. Apparently, Strom didn't want little black kids to swim in the same pools as little white kids, but he had no problem in impregnating his black maid, Carrie Butler in 1925. After Ms. Washington-Williams came forward and revealed her identity as Strom's daughter, the Thurmond family publicly acknowledged the truth.

Columbia, Capitol of South Carolina

by Stephen-KarenConn

"under construction"

Columbia, South Carolina's capital and largest city, is named for Christopher Columbus. The first European settlers came to the area in the early 1700s and this was chosen to be the site of South Carolina's new state capital in 1786.

Columbia was South Carolina's first planned city, with streets arranged in a grid pattern. It also holds the distinction of being the second planned city in the United States, with Savannah, Georgia being the first. Despite this, Columbia did not have a single paved street until Main Street was surfaced in 1908.

Today Columbia boasts a large array of accomodations, from luxury to budget, and restaurants for every taste. Attractions in the city include the outstanding Riverbanks Zoo, plus numerous museums, parks and historic sites. Columbia is also home to the University of South Carolina, and several other colleges and universities are in the area.

Columbia is an excellent example of a vibrant southern city, with a proud heritage.
