The City of Columbia: A Walk- and Bike-Friendly Community

The City of Columbia has a to offer our Leadership Summit guests. In fact, rates Columbia in the 10 Most Walkable Downtowns in South Carolina. The League of American Bicyclists designated Columbia as a Bicycle-Friendly Community and Walk Friendly Communities put their seal on the City too!

Thanks to an investment in revitalizing Main Street, the City of Columbia has had an increase in foot traffic and business development recently. With new businesses moving to Main Street, there’s plenty to do and to see. In 2001, City Center Partnership was formed to manage the downtown Business Improvement District in the 36-block area bounded by Gervais, Elmwood, Assembly and Marion streets. The organization provides public space management, economic development, place management, marketing services, and public advocacy for the Main Street District. Visit their website to see a current list of businesses, restaurants, and events on Main Street and the surrounding areas.
