For those of us who live here, Columbia seems to be coming of age. We are starting to get some of the respect we deserve by recently being dubbed one of Kiplinger's 10 Great Places to Live, one of the best college towns, one of the 10 most creative cities and one of the 30 best cities in the nation for young entrepreneurs. But some just can't give credit where credit is due.
We have a world class art museum and zoo, performing arts, a vibrant downtown area, and charming neighborhoods. We have the State Capitol, USC, championship college sports, and beautiful natural resources that provide many enjoyable outdoor activities. It's a great place to be.
