Columbia Vacations

Columbia, South Carolina's centrally located capital city, is cleverly referred to as Famously Hot. The cheeky nickname refers to its Southern locale and deep roots. You can explore antebellum mansions, enjoy one of the numerous theaters, or soak up the great outdoors during Columbia vacations. This fine city, located near three rivers, lets you try your hand at kayaking or strolling along the river walk. Dating back to the 17th century, Columbia also displays its role in American history with outstanding museums and historical sites. Booking Columbia hotel packages gives you the chance to experience this storied Southern city up close.

Major Attractions

The South Carolina State Museum offers more than historical information, since it intertwines arts, science, and technology into the largest museum in the Southeast. Continue learning about the area at the Woodrow Wilson Family home, or explore Adluh Flour Mills to learn about local agribusiness. The Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Gardens is a great outdoor activity, as is a walk around the Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park. Book a car rental in Columbia to make it easy to tour the city, taking in everything from the Columbia Museum of Art to the Columbia Marionette Theater.

Festivals and Events

When booking hotels in Columbia, consider planning your trip to coincide with some of the area's festivals. Summer wraps up with an annual Labor Day parade and festival, while another late summer celebration, the Festival of Heritage, is a celebration of arts and music held at the historic Mann-Simons Site. Enjoy brews and music with ColaTown Oktoberfest, at the end of September, with a visit to the River Rat Brewery. The busy late-summer season makes this an optimal time to visit.
