Vacation rentals in Columbia (SC)

Take a load off and relax in southern comfort

Colombia, also known as “Cola” because of an age-old abbreviation, is the capital of South Carolina. It is strategically located in the center of the state next to two rivers with easy access to the highways which is why the capital was moved from Charleston. The State House has an interesting history worth investigating but its Greek Revival architecture and beautiful gardens are worth touring. This capital city has a friendly neighborhood vibe featuring family friendly activities and beautiful parks for recreation and observing nature. You’ll enjoy southern hospitality and especially the food and drinks. Several unusual interactive museums are also in store for your discovery.

Charming rentals for everyone

Have a comfortable vacation South Carolina style with these beautiful spacious rentals. These listings are located right in the main area of Columbia with several scattered in the suburbs. Expect amenities like a fully equipped kitchen, large living room, flat screen TV and possibly even a garden. Many of the accommodations have a charming, homey feel with thoughtful touches. Enjoy a homemade breakfast on the patio or relax on the comfy sofa with a cup of Joe. These rentals are a step in the right direction toward having an epic, relaxing trip.

Vacations in Columbia (SC)

The area and getting around

The perfect venue for family fun

You will love your vacation in Colombia. Visit the Mast General Store housed in an original 1870s building featuring barrels of candy, toys, general merchandise, and delicious southern style food. Venture on a safari at the Riverbanks Zoo where Siberian Tigers roam and Komodo dragons run free. You’ll get to feed giraffes, zip line through nature and ride on the Spots and Stripes Railroad surrounded by botanical gardens in this huge park. Be sure to visit Frankie’s Fun Park where there’s mini golf, laser tag, batting cages and karting tracts.

Enticing southern comfort food

Travelers and activities

Columbia (SC) for History buffs

Colombia was founded in 1786 but was burned down in 1865 during General Sherman’s Civil War victory. So, historical buildings are few in number. As proof, notice the five stars where cannonballs struck The State House during the Civil War. Nevertheless, the Historic Homes tour features Woody Wilson’s childhood home, Hampton Preston’s Mansion, Robert Mill’s House, and The Mann-Simmons-Site spanning collections from 1843-1970 of a single African American family. Colombia’s Museum of Art boasts an unusual thematic arrangement of pieces and The South Carolina State Museum has four awesome floors with an Observatory, Planetarium, 4-D theater, and many permanent and temporary exhibits.

Columbia (SC) for Naturalists

Visit Congaree National Park home of the synchronized firefly display in the spring. There’s 9 hiking trails and 2 canoeing water trails as well as great fishing in Cedar Creek and Oxbow Lake. Harbison State Forest also boasts hiking, cycling, kayaking and canoeing on the Broad River but the landscapes are significantly different so it’s worth it to see both. The Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park was the site of the first textile mill to use hydroelectric power to operate what’s known as the Colombia Waterworks. You’ll enjoy walking through the mill and exploring its history. They say you can still see remnants of metal in the bricks.

„Columbia Fireflys, the minor league baseball team, got their name from the phenomenal synchronous firefly show from mid-May to mid-June.“
