About the Area

With a wide variety of local shops and restaurants, as well as numerous nationally recognized brands, Forest Acres has become known as "A City Within A City". Residents of the town enjoy a somewhat suburban lifestyle, but still remain within minutes of Downtown Columbia and plenty of shopping and dining options.

Forest Acres has created a true sense of community, and encourage events and festivals to take place within their city limits. Residents from all across the Midlands come together to enjoy events such as weekend Farmer's Markets and Rooftop Rhythms, a weekly music event that occurs during the fall months. 

Filled with parks, lakes, golf courses, tennis facilities, gyms, and more, Forest Acres has become a cultural hub in the heart of Columbia.
