Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, has a ton of options for residents and visitors to enjoy! They are only thirty minutes away from the only U.S. National Park in the state: Congaree National Park. Additionally, Columbia has a local zoo, children's, state, and art museums, a growing food scene, and several performing arts venues.
Like most of the greater Columbia area, Earlewood also has a handful of impressive hills. Many should be easily avoided, as long as you are okay with walking along rolling hills instead.
The borders of Earlewood include River Drive to the north, Main Street to the east, railroad tracks to the south, and the Columbia Canal to the west. River Drive, which cuts through the neighborhood, is the most trafficked road in Earlewood and you will need to exercise extra caution in this area.
