Renting a Cheap Apartment in Columbia

A historic Southern city, downtown Columbia is quickly transforming into a forward-thinking city center. A former warehouse district, the 3-mile-long Congaree Vista, is now full of restaurants, galleries and shops, many in historic buildings brought up to modern standards. Energy, technology and insurance are among the thriving companies here, and there are diverse job opportunities for a relatively small urban setting. Columbia is home to the flagship campus of the University of South Carolina, whose students bring youthful exuberance to the city’s dynamic. Warm weather, beautiful Finlay Park, a thriving art and theatre scene, and numerous cultural festivals are among the boasting points used by locals. Nearby Congaree National Park includes one of the largest expanses of old growth forest in North America.
