Every Saturday morning downtown Main Street comes alive with the hustle and bustle of local artisans, businesses and theatrics at the Soda City Market. Typically about 3+ blocks long, this market has exploded in popularity and is a great spot to try every type of cuisine imaginable and to get some gift shopping in during your stay. Did we mention people watching? This is the spot to be for cute puppy watching as well as to listen and watch live street performances.

One of our favorite hole-in-the-wall spots for drinks and eats in Five Points near the Blue Oasis and Peach Pad rentals and a short drive for all others. Interesting art and clientele mean you will always have a one-of-a-kind experience when you stop in at Goat's, a local long-time favorite.

A well-known local brewery in a restored historic Wright Brothers airplane hangar - when the weather is great the upstairs patio overlooking the airfield is one of our favorite spots to hang. They have great small bites like pizza and hummus with pita but our personal favorite brew is their ESB. This is near Columbia's urban farm City Roots as well if you are there during visiting hours.

About a 30 minutes drive from any Heartwood Furnished Home - the Palmetto Trail is great for a bike or hike along historic trestle bridges and retracing some of the south's storied past. We love to take our bikes to the Palmetto Trail with a picnic lunch.

This riverfront path is located within a few minutes walk of our West Cola Historic Mill House Property and a short drive from all other listings.

Fine dining at its best in West Columbia within walking distance of our Historic Mill House property and a short drive or Uber ride for everyone else. This restaurant is amazing and they also have a pizza and glass of wine special on Wednesday evenings. We recommend any of their seafood options, the lamb mac and cheese and their homemade ice creams are delicious!

Our favorite spot for sushi and is unfortunately a drive from all of our rentals and in the opposite direction of downtown. BUT, if you're up for the drive and craving the best sushi in town, this is your spot! We recommend sitting at the sushi bar and enjoying a sake box, spicy tuna sashimi, volcano roll and a fiesta roll.
