The Great Outdoors
Starting at the north end of the Congaree River, and continuing north along the Broad River, there are three hiking trails located right in the city. The Columbia Canal Path follows the Broad River north, from the downtown core to Riverview Terrace. It is an easy hike, with scenic views of the river and the city. The Three Rivers Greenway Trail starts across the water, from Meeting St (just before the bridge) and continues south to River Bluff Estates. This is also an easy, level trail, for those wanting scenery with light exercise.
Guignard Clay Quarry Loop Trail is farther south yet, starting on Old State Road, near Cayce Riverwalk. This is a shorter trail but moderate in difficulty, for those hoping to stretch their legs while they are out from behind the steering wheel. Saluda Shoals Trail, Lake Murray Trail and Fourteen Mile Creek Trail are to the west, near Lake Murray; Gibsons Park Pond Loop is near Lexington, just south of Murray Lake. All of these are easy, level trails and you can drive your Columbia RV rental directly to Murray Lake, if you wish, to finish a nice relaxing hike with lunch at the lake.
For those looking for something more relaxing, Saluda Shoals Park has a nature center, a water park for young children and also rents kayaks by the hour. To the east of Columbia, Sesquicentennial Park offers kayak and canoe rentals, as well as a nature trail and mountain bike loop through its serene forest setting.
About halfway between Columbia and Lexington, you can park your Columbia motorhome rental in a tree-enclosed setting at Barnyard RV Park; if you're lucky enough to be there on a weekend, they host a flea market full of interesting items.

In April, there is the Artista Vista, where art galleries keep their doors open much later into the evening and even display some of their works on the sidewalk outside.

Food and song is everywhere, and local groups even perform ethnic dances for the partygoers; play your cards right and you might even be invited to join in.
Those who are interested in sampling more traditional southern food should check out the Indie Grits festival, a celebration of movies catered by food trucks that will appear out of nowhere, or the Rosewood Crawfish Festival, which supplies event goers with music and food (you guessed it, Crawfish). The Indie Grits Festival is in April, the Rosewood Crawfish Festival slightly later in May.
Columbia hosts the Deckle Edge Literary Festival in February. It also hosts not one but two marathons, for those who enjoy watching others work up a good sweat.
