Find your way into the sultry heart of South Carolina as you look for a new home in the capital city known to all as Columbia, and to many people as the "Capital of Southern Hospitality." Columbia has a rich history that began in the late 18th century as the South Carolinians decided they wanted a new state capital and picked a plot of land to grow into a great city. Their plan worked with Columbia being recognized as one of America's best cities with awards like "Top 25 Best Places to Retire" as well as one of "America's Best Affordable Places to Live."
From finger-lickin barbeque to the perfect plate of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and collard greens, Columbia can show you how to eat! Little Pigs Barbecue is a cult favorite of Columbian locals with an endless buffet of ribs, brisket, barbecue chicken, potato salad, macaroni, and several different sauces to lap it all up in. Grab a burger at Pawleys Front Porch where Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives approves. Who wouldn't with a patty infused with fried green tomatoes?
Weekends never seem to be long enough, but in Columbia you can still accomplish plenty of things in just two days. Get all your shopping done and then some at the centrally located Dutch Square Mall or find lost treasures at the City Market Antiques Mall. Work off all that southern fried food you just ate on a stand up paddle board or kayak along the Congaree River. Also, the Carolina Children's Garden is a perfect pair of innocence and beauty as children can play together in a garden of butterflies and flowers.
Find the home for you and your family as you search through the many new homes listed on New Home Source. Columbia is sure to hold a secret gem just for you.
