Did you know that Columbia was recently named in the Top 8 Cities You Should Visit Before They’re Too Popular?
If you have spent more than 5+ years in Columbia, SC, you know that the city is booming. We have a new minor league baseball team, Fort Jackson celebrated 100 years old of service and Main Street is seeing an influx of new breweries, coffee shops and restaurants.
If you haven’t checked out some of Columbia’s “real southern hotspots” here are a few that you don’t want to miss out on.
- Riverbank Zoo and Garden: This spring the zoo opened up a brand new Sea Lion exhibit that you don’t want to miss! The zoo offers activities for all ages including zip line tours, children’s waterfall junction, and of course, lots and lots of animals.
- Columbia Fireflies: The brand new Spirit Communications Park has drawn more than 155,000 people to watch the Columbia Fireflies take on other South Atlantic minor league teams. The Park is located in the new Bull Street Development which has a 20-year plan in place that will draw in retail shops, apartments, restaurants and much more.
- Main Street: If you haven’t made your way to Main St. in the past year, you are missing out! Main St. offers everything you could imagine for the perfect date night. Cocktails at Bourbon, dinner at Public House, a movie at The Nickelodeon and finishing with ice cream at Sweet Cream, you can’t go wrong. Look out for a boutique grocery (Local Yocal), boutique hotel (Hotel Trundel) and a high-end bowling alley.
