Planning a Tour? Here's What We Recommend Seeing in Columbia:

As the capital and second-largest city in South Carolina, Columbia has plenty to see and do. Start your tour at the historic State House, where the Confederate flag was removed in 2015. Marvel at the bronze-covered copper dome, which was inspired by St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. You can even go inside and sit in on live legislative sessions!

Next, head to the South Carolina State Museum, the state's largest and most comprehensive museum covering art, cultural history, natural history, and science/technology. Don't miss seeing the giant replica of a Megalodon shark! Kids and adults alike will enjoy exploring the 4D theater, observatory, and digital dome planetarium too.

Hungry after learning? Grab authentic southern BBQ, fried okra, and sweet tea at local favorite Moe's Original BBQ in the Congaree Vista. This hip downtown district is full of art galleries, boutiques, and eateries. After fueling up, check out the iconic tunnels of Whaley's Mill, tour the City Roots urban farm, catch an indie film at The Nickelodeon movie theater, or take in modern art and cultural exhibits at the Columbia Museum of Art.

Next, hop back on your charter bus and relax while your driver takes you out of the city center. Cruise along scenic Lake Murray, South Carolina's most popular recreational lake. Spanning 50,000 acres with nearly 650 miles of shoreline, the massive reservoir was created in 1930 to provide hydroelectric power. Visitors love boating, fishing, water-skiing, and more on the lake. The Lake Murray Dam, measuring over 1.5 miles wide, is a sight to behold as well.

Finish your Columbia tour with an escape into nature at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden. This world-class zoo sits along the scenic Saluda River and features over 2,000 exotic and endangered animals across 170 acres of lush gardens and natural habitats. Get up close to gorillas, giraffes, koalas, giant pandas, grizzly bears, sea lions, penguins and more. You can even zip line over the zoo on an exhilarating ride across the treetops.
