Riverside Retreat in the Capital City
The Columbia Presbyterian Community campus sits on the banks of the scenic Saluda River, just minutes from downtown Columbia, SC, and the energy of the capitol city. On any afternoon, residents can take in an exhibit at the Columbia Museum of Art, tour historic homes, or admire one of the celebrated gardens at the Riverbanks Zoo. Music, theater, and year-round festivals make Columbia one of the most attractive and vibrant cities in the South. The city boasts a world class public library and is home to several universities and colleges. On game days at the University Of South Carolina, the air crackles with Gamecock team spirit.
Residents of The Columbia Presbyterian Community have a wealth of options for shopping just minutes from their door. Walmart Supercenter is around two and a half miles southeast from campus while Belk’s, Dillard’s and other stores at the Columbiana Centre mall lie about five miles to the northwest. The Centre is a great destination for people watching and enjoying a turn on the old fashioned carousel.
Escape to Lake Murray
Just minutes from The Columbia Presbyterian Community is the beautiful pristine Lake Murray, named by Boating Magazine as “one of the top ten places to live and boat.” Lake Murray offers 650 miles of shoreline with numerous recreational and dining venues to include world class fishing tournaments.
In the summer months June through August, you can enjoy a sunset cruise aboard the Spirit of Lake Murray and watch the Purple Martins on Bomb Island. Each year, almost 1 million Purple Martins fly to beautiful Lake Murray and roost on Bomb Island, the largest Purple Martin sanctuary in North America and the second largest in the world.
