Great Sports & Recreation
Sports play a major role in the areas of the West Metro. Softball, Baseball, Soccer, Tennis, Golf, Basketball, Football all have a plethora of facilities available as well as events almost every day of the year. The area plays host to many adult as well as youth tournaments from the local level to a national scale. Accommodations in the West Metro provide easy access to the fields as well as restaurants and shopping.
For Information on sports facilities and events visit Lexington County Recreation and Aging Commission.
With the University of South Carolina less than 5 minutes away, the West Metro is a great place to stay while traveling to see the Gamecocks or their opponents. All of the major facilities for USC Athletics are less than 10 minutes from all West Metro Accommodations. The travel from most every room requires a turn or two to get to the Stadiums or the Arena. To view USC’s schedules and arena information click Gamecocks Online.
Recreation is also very important to the West Metro area from walking or Picnicking in our parks, listening to live music or seeing a production at the West Columbia Amphitheater. Maybe fishing for striped bass, or a lazy tubing trip in our lovely river is more your cup of tea. All types of outdoor recreation are available here in the West Meto.
Maybe you are more of an indoor enthusiast. Try Bill’s Music Shop Pick’in Parlor on any Friday night for a free style Bluegrass Music jam, bring your banjo and join the fun. Enjoy Square Dancing at “The Barn” in West Columbia where the calendar is full year round.
