Living and Working in the Columbia Area

Living and Working in the Columbia Area

We are located in the town of Cayce,  which is about 4 miles from Columbia; South Carolina’s capitol, largest city, and center for entertainment, arts, culture and recreation. The climate here is mild winters, warm springs and autumns, and hot summers. Temperatures range from summer highs in the 90s to winter lows in the 40s. Short commute times, low traffic, and affordable housing make the Columbia area a great place to live and work.


When it comes to lifestyles the area has many food choices and outdoor festivals throughout the year. There are many shops and restaurants in Columbia, which also hosts one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day festivals in the Southeast. The USC Gamecocks are based in Columbia and provide one of the best college sports experiences to be found anywhere. During the fall William-Brice Stadium, which seats 80,250 fans, fills past capacity. In the winter, men’s and women’s (2017 national champs) basketball fill the Colonial Life Arena. 

Outdoor Recreation

The region has three major rivers and two large lakes for enjoying water sports and the outdoors. The Riverbanks Zoo is home to more than 2,000 animals and Riverfront Park is a popular destination for walkers, joggers, and cyclists. Sesquicentennial State Park and Congaree National Park are both less than 30 minutes away and offer hiking and canoeing activities. Lake Murray, with its 600 miles of shoreline, is a great venue for boating, swimming, and fishing.

Culture and The Arts

Music, art, and entertainment are all available here. The Koger Center for the Arts, the Township Auditorium, and the Nickelodeon Theatre offer programs throughout the year. The Columbia Museum of Art is the largest fine art museum in South Carolina, and the South Carolina Philharmonic is the resident professional orchestra of central South Carolina.
