Founded in 1786 as the site of South Carolina’s new capital city, it was one of the first planned cities in the United States. The area is often cited for its high quality of life offerings, with its many cultural amenities, parks, and recreational features. At the confluence of two major rivers, Columbia is one of the best destinations in the country for kayak and canoe enthusiasts.

With an average home price for a single family home in the area hovering around $150,000, great schools, excellent weather year round, and a stable real estate market due to large number of government and service sector employees has made Columbia one of 30 communities named “America’s Most Livable Communities.” Increasingly, Columbia is becoming recognized as an ideal city for retirees. “Where to Retire” magazine listed Columbia as one of its 25 best choices for retirement as a “budget town” in its January/February 2007 edition.

Columbia has activities for every age with features like EdVenture and the Riverbank Zoo for children of all ages, the State Museum, the historic Vista with unique shops and restaurants, great Country Clubs for golfers, Lake Murray for fishermen and an average temperature of 64 degrees make Columbia the perfect place to call home.
