About the Area
The Cayce and West Columbia Areas are just across the Congaree river from all that Columbia has to offer, but with a culture all their own. These areas have a small-city feel with historic homes, condominiums and friendly neighbors. Since these areas are so affordable compared to the city center of Columbia, many professionals, families and even students enjoy living just minutes from the hustle and bustle of city life.
These neighboring cities offer many attractions to midlands residents with the Cayce and West Columbia Riverwalks, which offer paved trails and water sports, as well as the Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Gardens. The Zoo even has a zipline over the river so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery these areas have to offer. The popular State Street area has local bars, restaurants and shoppes as well as a beautiful view of the Columbia Skyline.
Cayce and West Columbia are being utilized for their proximity by builders and developers with new condos and student housing currently underway. Condos and apartments are not the only housing options, though. There are many neighborhoods such as the Avenues with bungalows that still have their historic charm.
