Easy access, affordability, and proximity to Riverbanks Zoo and Colonial Life Arena make Lake Murray a winner in the boating and living category.

"Columbia's southern charm makes it a great setting for relaxing and civility. Nearby Lake Murray provides a place to bust loose."

"The city overflows with options such as concerts, ice shows, Broadway shows, dancing, historic homes, museums, theaters, and a zoo and botanical garden. Columbia’s Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden is consistently ranked among the nation’s top 10."
