A compact capital with stately southern history, Columbia serves as a symbol of the south.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Saluda County Museum and Elloree Heritage Museum & Cultural Center. Attractions like Saluda Shoals Park and Carowinds make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Congaree National Park (in Hopkins), PuckerButt Pepper Company (in Fort Mill) and Augusta (Augusta Canal Discovery Center, Riverwalk, & more). There's still lots to do: ponder the world of politics at South Carolina State House, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter's Catholic Church, and have some family-friendly fun at Escape Plan Columbia.
