What travelers to Columbia are saying

Love Columbia! Wide variety of restaurants, shopping and lodging. Daughter was a student at the University for 4 years, so we know our way around quite a bit. Love 5 Points, the Vista and historic downtown areas. The people of Columbia are friendly! Service workers in restaurants and retail outlets are helpful and appreciative. Can't recall when we ever had a bad experience anywhere. Downtown easy to walk to restaurants, nail salons, coffee shops, UPS, USC campus, Colonial Life Arena.

I had read some positive and negative reviews about Columbia and was a bit worried. My trip consisted of visiting a friend and taking in the local area. I was a bit surprised for a holiday weekend that it was quiet in town, but a farmers market on Saturday morning, and a nice quiet brunch on Sunday was well worth the trip. Being from NY I was looking for some southern hospitality and I did find it. Don't be afraid to say hi to a complete stranger.

Columbia has grown on this northern mom of a USC student. It is not a big, bustling city like NY or even Boston or Charleston, but the school makes it special. Young adults will like 5 Points and both young and old will like The Vista area. People are very very friendly. Coming from Massachusetts we always find gas cheaper and groceries more expensive in South Carolina.
