Thank you and Welcome! Columbia, South Carolina is the home of the University of South Carolina Fighting Gamecocks at Williams-Brice Stadium. The USC Main Campus has a large, extended campus that has over 32,000 students, both on and off campus, attending classes annually with 4 other locations in the state. The University Horseshoe is the original part of the 210 year old campus, which has a museum as well. As a USC graduate and native to Columbia, I am very familiar with the area.
Columbia has the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden for visitors, both young and old, with a variety of activities and interests for all attendees. They are presently expanding the zoo and have recently added a new Zip Line that ends with visitors zipping over the Saluda River.
Fort Jackson is also nearby for individuals and families serving our country. Many families live within a short drive to the Fort and enjoy the attractions Columbia has to offer.
For visitors to Columbia and surrounding areas, we have the South Carolina State House, The Governor's House, The South Carolina Military Museum, and Edventure within a few blocks of each other. In the nearby town of Camden, SC, we have the Camden Military Academy and both the Carolina and Colonial Cup Horse Races in the Spring and Fall.
Also nearby is Cobblestone Park, home to the USC Golf team. This beautiful, master planned community has recently completed a 40,000 SF Clubhouse and restaurant. There are 3, 9-hole courses to choose from on their premier course that would challenge even Rory McIlroy. This is a beautiful area within a 20 minute drive to downtown Columbia, Camden, and the surrounding areas. Charlotte is only an hour and 20 minutes away in case you need to catch a quick flight to the Caribbean.
