Date Night in Columbia, SC
USA | South Carolina | Columbia | $-$$
The City of Dreams hosts a number of opportunities for fun and unique date ideas. If you’re looking to enjoy a Saturday on the town try a morning date to Soda City in downtown Columbia, SC. This is a 3-block portion of Main Street that has hundreds of local vendors heading its way every week. From authentic Belgian waffles to handmade crafts and local farms, they have a wide array of treats and accessories to browse. Make sure you also go into all of the stores along the strip as well, you won’t want to miss all of their inventory. Once you have filled up on delicious treats and experienced the farmer’s market continue walking and cross Gervais Street to get a closer glimpse at the stunning State House grounds. With ample photo spots, plenty of steps to climb then sit and relax on, this is the perfect way to walk off some of that early morning food and to enjoy being outside. If you’re not so much a morning person but still looking to experience Columbia, then do not stress. Start your evening out by enjoying the sunset on the State Grounds, browsing the shops in the Vista on Gervais Street or walking down Main Street. Once you have done this it is time for a wonderful dinner. If you love American style food, then Cola’s is the place to go. Cola’s is a casual fine dining bar/restaurant specializing in seafood, steaks, and other culinary creations influenced by a broad range of ethnic cooking. If the weather is nice then two of the main walls are actually garage doors that open so you can enjoy the views of the State House and the bustle of Downtown Columbia from the convenience of your table. After you have enjoyed a lovely dinner head back to Main Street, where The Grand will happily host you and keep you entertained for the rest of the night. Between bowling alleys and a golf simulator there is fun to be had for all. If you choose to use any recommendations found in this blog, please let us know how it goes!
