Hotel Ideas

After dinner and a Philharmonic performance, spend a day or two (or three!) in Columbia and experience not just great attractions like Riverbanks Zoo & Botanical Gardens, the Columbia Museum of Art, or the S.C State Museum, but our abundant natural beauty found at  the Congaree National Park, Sesquicentennial State Park, Harbison State Forest or Lake Murray.
