Soda City Summers…..Top Summertime Activities

As the summer months are wrapping up, be sure to make the most of these next few weeks and enjoy some of Columbia’s best summertime activities including a list of our favorites which we’ve included for you below.  After all, Columbia is “Famously Hot But Surprisingly Cool”!

Lake Murray PicLake Murray – Who doesn’t enjoy  going to the lake?  From downtown Columbia, you can find yourself at beautiful Lake Murray in about 30 minutes.  Between boating, tubing or just an afternoon lunch at the Marina, this is a great way to pass the time and get some sun!

VistaExplore the Vista – Whether you like to shop til you drop, listen to live music or are looking for a night of unique dining, the Columbia Vista offers all of the above.  The Vista is totally walkable so you can knock out all three of these activities at once if so inclined!

SnoconesPelicans Snoballs – This is a CPM office favorite.  Located on Rosewood, this is the perfect stop on your way home from class or back to the office after lunch.  With over 100 flavors to choose from, this flavored snow literally melts in your mouth.  From personal experience we suggest getting a medium, the small is just never enough! http://www.pelicanssnoballs.com/

KayakingFloating or Kayaking the River – Looking for adventure?  Look no further than the Palmetto Outdoor Center.  They can hook you up for a kayaking or tubing trip down the Congaree & Saluda Rivers. It’s an awesome way to explore the beauty  of Columbia and we apparently have a Class 2 rapid….that’s right….Class 2! http://palmettooutdoor.com/

Enjoy these last weeks of summer!
