Discover Columbia

Situated smack-dab in the Midlands of South Carolina, Columbia is the state capital and home of the University of South Carolina. A diverse community with a distinctive Southern flair, Columbia possesses a wide variety of dining options. From easy-going barbecue shacks to countless ethnic eateries, there is truly something for everyone. And don’t forget about the formidable fine-dining scene. Best bets? For something casual, stop off at a college pub, grab a handful of boiled peanuts and sink your teeth into a pimento cheese burger. Looking for something more upscale? Go downtown, pick out a trendy eatery and order a plate of locally sourced shrimp and grits. If you have room, seek out a big piece of bourbon cream pie.
