Our hotel is five miles from Fort Jackson and seven miles northeast of downtown’s points of interest. Getting acquainted with the city reveals the industries and assets that make it curiously diverse. Learning and sports thrive at the University of South Carolina and Benedict College. There’s a strong healthcare community with the presence of Blue Cross Blue Shield, Palmetto Health’s hospitals, and Providence Hospital. Soldiers train at the Army’s Fort Jackson not far from markers for Civil War cannon ball strikes at the State House. Inside the base, golfers tee off at two championship courses. An artistic center downtown supports galleries and the Columbia Museum of Art, and natural beauty awaits along three riverbanks and at large area parks.
