West Columbia sits on the Congaree River across the bridge from Columbia, South Carolina. Here you'll find a tight-knit community with tree-lined streets, delicious restaurants, and cute shops. Sitting at the meeting place of three major highways - Interstate 20, Interstate 26, and Interstate 76 - this is one of the fastest growing counties in South Carolina.
You'll also find the campus of the University of South Carolina not far away. With world-class rankings for its business, sport and entertainment management, and school library media and online education programs, this is a wonderful place to attend school. With Vibeant energy during sporting events and a gorgeous campus, the school also makes this a more lively community even if you are long past your college days. The natural beauty of the river and small-town feel of West Columbia also draw people in from the big city and is an idyllic place to spend the weekend, live, or just take a stroll along the gorgeous river banks.
