Columbia Flights Guide
A thousand cities are named after the famous Genoese explorer who discovered the Americas for Europe, but South Carolina’s is unique. It was here that the first state seceded from the Union in the build-up to the Civil War. Because of that, much of the city was burned to the ground as Union troops moved back north. Today, one of the country’s first planned cities still has significant landmarks, but it is a modernizing capital as well.
The South Carolina Statehouse is one of the most interesting places to visit in the city, and a good starting point to understand its history. The Union general Sherman attacked Columbia, and his artillery shells hit the dome where today gold marks remain. The South Carolina State Museum is interesting, as it describes the history in a uniquely southern light. Back into the city, one will find the best period homes in the historic Hampton neighborhood. Another pleasant walk brings one onto the University of South Carolina’s campus and among its many shady parks. The oldest building in Colombia, however, which was constructed before the Civil War, is the Seibels House, which is also a museum of the city and an apt complement to any visit.
Columbia Metropolitan Airport is the main air hub. Delta, United, US Airways and American Eagle provide service here.
