"Columbia in April" Columbia by ZanieOR

Columbia Travel Guide: 217 reviews and 295 photos

I just returned from Columbia, where I stayed with my traveling friend, Marilyn, in a historical bed and breakfast for a short stay in South Carolina's capital city.
It was a short stay -- we arrived late Wednesday night and left early Sunday morning. We came for a specific purpose, to see my son Matt for Family Day and his graduation from basic training at Fort Jackson.
However, we also managed to cram in a short day and half of sightseeing in historic Columbia and nearby Camden, where to our surprise we learned more about the Revolutionary War than the Civil War.
For more reasons than one, my time in Columbia was truly memorable.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of history, all woven together wherever we went
  • Cons:Despite a fairly small downtown area, we kept getting lost
  • In a nutshell:A nice place to visit in April
  • Last visit to Columbia: Apr 2005

    April is definitely the best time to visit S.C and Georgia. I love to visit Columbia, too. Camden also has a Carnegie library, one of othe first I've visited. Greetings from Augusta, GA. Marcia
