Since Columbia City Ballet’s founding in 1961, it has integrated the world of dance within the lives of the region. Reaching more than 51,000 people in a season with more than 80 major performances each year, the Ballet is a local favorite for both children and adults.
Where the Broad, Saluda, and Congaree Rivers meet, there’s the Three Rivers Greenway, a 9.5-mile series of riverfront pathways which includes lighted trails and boardwalks, outdoor amphitheaters, and breathtaking views of downtown Columbia.
