If you have an interest in animals and wildlife, put the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden on your list of places to visit. Be sure to ask the staff about special events and where to find the zoo's more unusual species.

When the weather is fine, grab something for lunch and find a shady corner at one of the area's pleasant urban parks, such as Finlay Park and Polo Road Ball Park. You'll also find plenty of space to lie around on the grass at Earlewood Park and Crooked Creek Park.

History comes to life at the South Carolina State Museum and the Fairfield County Museum thanks to their wide range of illuminating exhibits. Do you like the sound of those? Continue your explorations at the Lexington County Museum and the Cayce Historical Museum.

The University of South Carolina and South Carolina State House are certainly worth paying a visit to, even if you aren't a history buff. More tales from the days of old await at the Allen University and Wilson House.

Learn about the region's spiritual side and enjoy the serene atmosphere at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church and Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. If you'd like to explore some more religious sites, check for tours at Saint Peter's Catholic Church and Bethesda Presbyterian Church.

Familiarize yourself with local fashion and pick up a few gifts at a few of the area's shopping centers, such as Columbia Place Mall and Village at Sandhill Mall.

If you take an interest in the arts, buy some tickets, settle in to your seat and prepare for some entertainment at the Columbia Marionette Theater or the Trustus Theatre. The Workshop Theatre and the Town Theatre are also terrific spots for local and touring artists.

If you love golf, don't miss out on visiting the Oak Hills Golf Club, the perfect place to enjoy a few rounds here.

Before you pack your bags and head home, be sure to see a few of Columbia's other attractions. Saluda Shoals Park and Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park might catch your interest. Also, consider seeing the Koger Center for the Arts and the Springdale Race Course if you've got the time.
