Welcome to Columbia — the quintessential college town and so much more. Being home to Mizzou, Columbia College and Stephens College keeps Columbia a vibrant and active community.
Located between Kansas City and St. Louis on I-70, it is easy to get to Columbia. With a population base that has topped 100,000 people by the latest estimates, Columbia is an inviting blend of rural hospitality and big-city flair.
Food lovers can enjoy farmer's markets, blue-plate specials, gourmet specialties and international dishes all within close proximity. Outdoor adventurers may want to bike the MKT Trail to catch the 227-mile long Katy Trail State Park, the longest rails-to-trails conversion project in the U.S, or they can choose a guided canoe or kayak tour on the Missouri River. Urbanites might prefer Columbia’s nightclubs, coffee houses and music venues that offer a combined average of over 40 live performances a week.
Those with an artistic flair might want to spend some time in Columbia’s galleries and museums. Better yet, they can plan a visit around one of Columbia’s many arts-based festivals held throughout the year. Families can take advantage of Columbia’s award-winning gardens, parks and recreation facilities. Other great family activities are offered throughout the year. Of course, shopping is available at boutiques and specialty shops, large retail stores and malls located throughout the city.
