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.
