Thankful for Columbia

November 20, 2012

General Columbia

For those of us who live and work in Columbia, it’s easy to take all the amazing things the city has to offer for granted. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we’re taking some time to remember all we have to be thankful for because we live here.

-The vibrant atmosphere that comes from having over 25,000 college students in our city every year. And the calm quiet that emerges when they’re gone for breaks.

-Slices from Shakespeare’s.

-Stages that have been graced by artists ranging from Johnny Cash to Tony Bennett.

-Over 60 parks to play in, run through, explore or seek a peaceful moment.

Main Squeeze Smoothies.

Festivals where you can make new friends or disappear into a sea of strangers.

-An independent film house that also serves beer.

Football Saturdays.

-The ability to take our taste buds on a world tour just by choosing where to have breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Shops where you can find a gift that comes from the heart.

-You! The visitors who come to Columbia and then share their experiences with others. It allows the story of Columbia to keep going and going. For that, we say thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
