I would pick Richmond over Columbia. I have a friend in Lexington right by Columbia, and he hasn’t been able to find work for months. The people are both generally conservative in both cities, but slightly more in Columbia. You’ll have to go check out the areas for urself to make a proper decision. In my opinion I would pick something near the coastline in South Carolina like Charleston. I lived in Conway, SC for a little while, and hated it. However, I was close to Myrtle Beach.
