The tagline for Columbia is "the smart, innovative, artsy, eclectic, clever, savvy, vibrant, too-dynamic-to-fit-into-a-tagline city." We think that you'll find it to be all of that and more.

Columbia is blessed with a large variety of excellent local restaurants, not to mention most major chain restaurants. Want to find a local restaurant review? Check out the CoMo Whine and Dine blog. Or you can use their random restaurant picker if you just can’t decide. When I tried it, it sent me to Teller’s. Hmmm… Teller’s. If you go there, try their crunchy sweet potato fries and lovely chocolate mousse.
A Columbia original. Poodle skirts, Elvis, and the best hand-dipped shakes ever. They also make a mean coconut cream pie.
