A compact capital with stately southern history, Columbia serves as a symbol of the south.
Step off the beaten path and head to Congaree National Park and Francis Beidler Forest. Visiting Phinizy Swamp Nature Park and God's Acre Healing Springs will get you outdoors. Explore Columbia's surroundings by going to Barnwell State Park (in Blackville), McDowell Nature Center and Preserve (in Charlotte) and Peachtree Rock Heritage Preserve (in Lexington). There's much more to do: stroll around Saluda Shoals Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Sea Lion Landing, stop by Cyndi's Sweet Shoppe, and admire the natural beauty at Hopelands Gardens.

For reviews, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Columbia road trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Columbia Metropolitan Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
