The three major thoroughfares in Columbia are Stadium Blvd, Providence Blvd, and Broadway which allows access to three major universities, insurance headquarters and top research hospitals. The Katy trail is centrally located in the city for those wanting to hike or bike.
Downtown Columbia, also known as the "the District," hosts a broad spectrum of restaurants, from burgers, and pizza, to elegant gourmet dining. Try not to leave town without trying a burger from Booches or pizza from Shakespeare's. Booches' hamburgers were named one of the top ten burgers in America by USA Today. Shakespeare's pizza was the winner of the "Best Bites Challenge: College Edition" on ABC's Good Morning America. Numerous unique boutiques and galleries are available in the District as well.
The Columbia Mall is located off of I-70 and Stadium Blvd.
For our traveling sports teams, major sports facilities and outdoor playing fields are just minutes away.
