The Cultural Attractions in Columbia

The city of Columbia is located in the state of South Carolina. It is named as the capital of South Carolina and the largest city in the state to date. Geographically, Columbia is in the geographic center of the state, and serves as a primary city in South Carolina’s Midlands region. The Midlands region consists of the state’s central part, as well as a few counties that stretched for miles. At the confluence of the Broad and Saluda rivers, the Congaree River is formed, which is the major water resource for the city of Columbia. Columbia is the seat of government of Richland County, but it still extends to the Lexington County, a neighboring county. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has an estimated population of 131, 686 as of the year 2012. In addition, the city is part of the Columbia Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), which has a population of 793, 779, making it the 2nd largest MSA in the state.

The city of Columbia is known by many nicknames. Among the most popular ones are “The City of Dreams”, “Soda City”, “The Capital of Southern Hospitality” and “Paradise City”. However, the culture of the city is a notable facet of its rich history. The city boasts a long list of cultural attractions that give Columbia some recognition, as well as an identity, which is often used to promote the tourism to local Americans and foreign tourists.

One of the renowned historic sites in Columbia is the Town Theatre. Built in 1917, the establishment is a historic venue of musicals and theatre plays that cater to a general audience. It is considered as the oldest community theatre in the country that is still being used up to this date. The playhouse within the boundaries of the Town Theatre is included in the list of National Register of Historic Places.

The Nickelodeon Theatre is also a famous landmark in the city of Columbia. Between the Blanding and Taylor streets in the Main Street, the store front theater has been in operation since the 1970s. The 99-seat non-profit art house establishment is managed by the Columbia Film Society and accommodates a total of 25, 000 movie lovers yearly.

Aside from these two, there are other cultural attractions that provide inspiration and action among the creative community, such as the Columbia Marionette Theatre, The Columbia Museum of Art, Workshop Theatre of South Carolina, Trustus Theatre and the South Carolina Shakespeare Company among others.
