Welcome to Columbia, South Carolina
As the state capital and largest city in the state, Columbia, South Carolina offers both visitors and residents a wealth of recreational activities. The city has been named one of the U. S.'s thirty most livable communities by the Partners for Livable Communities. Columbia was also named as one of the best mid-sized cities for relocating families. And in 2009, CNN Money named the city as one of the top 25 in which to retire. In 1786, the newly formed state assembly of South Carolina chartered Columbia to serve as the state capital. Located in almost the geographic center of the state, the location was a compromise between competing factions in the state. In 1805, Columbia was incorporated as a village, and in 1854, finally became a city. Columbia followed the plans of its founders closely as one of the earliest examples of planned cities in the United States.
