West Columbia, South Carolina

West Columbia, located along the Congaree and Saluda rivers, is graced with tree-lined streets and quaint shops.

Historic neighborhoods stand side-by-side with new developments, adding to its charm and livability. Protective of the natural beauty of the rivers and its small town feel, one of its most attractive features is that it’s just across the bridge from the capital, Columbia.
