What neighborhoods in Columbia are good for eating out?
My favorite is the Five Point area of Columbia! Mr. Friendly's and Congaree Grill are about the best Southern food in the city and there are little places like the Salty Nut and Goatfeathers, which are just good places to hang out with friends. I could stick to Five Points and be pretty happy.
I've got dogs. What the the best places in Columbia for being outdoors with pets?
Columbia is dog friendly! There are four fenced dog parks most of which are in the outer suburban areas like Seven Oaks, Valencia Heights and at Sesquicentennial State Park. The state parks are great about providing areas. Even Finlay Park near downtown allows dogs, on leash of course, but it's so convenient too.
