famously hot


The first thing many attendees notice upon arrival in The Real Southern Hot Spot is the southern graciousness of both the people and the landscape. Our hospitality professionals and residents are glad you have chosen to spend time in the Columbia area, and want to show you the best of what we have to offer. Equally welcoming is Columbia's layout. When meeting in the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, you are in the heart of the Convention District and will find walkable shops, coffee houses, spas, restaurants, nightlife and art galleries. If you have elected to stay at one of our suburban hotel properties for your Convention Center meeting, you will be connected to the city center via easy interstate access with significantly less traffic than larger cities. If you have time, make the Columbia SC Visitors Center your first stop for information, an ice-cold beverage and a sampling of local art.
