Begin your tour at the South Carolina State House, a historic landmark that stands as a testament to Columbia’s fascinating history. Allowing your children to understand the context of their destination can provide a good foundation for the rest of your visits. Next, take your family for an exciting day out at Frankie's Fun Park. With an array of games and rides, there is something for everyone, ensuring no member of the family feels left out.

For an immersive educational experience, EdVenture is the place to be. It provides an interactive environment where learning meets fun, helping to stimulate young minds whilst keeping them engaged. And of course, no visit to Columbia would be complete without a trip to the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden. Home to over 2,000 animals, it not only provides entertainment but also imparts important messages about animal care and conservation.

Every family is unique, and Columbia embraces this with its diverse range of activities. Choose what suits your family's interests the most and watch as Columbia unfolds into your most memorable holiday destination.

When to visit

With its charm and a plethora of activities available all year round, Columbia is always ready to be explored. But to get the most of what this city offers, planning your visit during certain times of the year can elevate your family holiday experience.

Spring (March through May) and autumn (September through October) show South Carolina in her true colours. The temperature is just right, and the city abounds with events like Myrtle Beach Bike Week or the South Carolina State Fair. If you're looking to escape the summer heat, consider visiting the coast. Do remember holidays during term time might not be as bustling with family-friendly hospitality. Finally, if a festive getaway is what you're after, December sees the city decorated in mesmerising Christmas lights. Whichever time you choose, Columbia awaits you and your family with open arms.
