Welcome to Columbia…South Carolina’s Capital City

Columbia is South Carolina’s capital and home to the University of South Carolina, the state’s flagship and largest university.

Columbia is home to Fort Jackson, the largest United States Army installation for Basic Combat Training. In 1860, the city was the location of the South Carolina Secession Convention, which marked the departure of the first state from the Union in the events leading up to the Civil War.



Along Columbia’s wide avenues are historic sites ranging from an antebellum mansion to the former home of a slave who bought her freedom, plus museums, galleries, music venues, theaters and shops.

Columbia’s three rivers, lake, canal, national park and several city parks offer opportunities for recreation and relaxation. Among the kid-pleasing destinations are a zoo and the largest children’s museum in the south.
