The city of West Columbia has been called a “jewel on the river” — the Congaree River, that is! This quaint community is right across the Congaree, via the Gervais Street or Blossom Street Bridge, from the capital city of Columbia. It has direct access to all of Columbia’s “big city” amenities, while retaining the tree-lined streets and unique advantages that give this small town its charm.
West Columbia is a thriving city with a bright future. It is slowly but surely carving out its own identity, unique from its namesake across the Congaree. It is no longer simply a commuter town, but a bustling business and recreational district, and its residents enjoy this distinction. The city maintains the popular West Columbia-Cayce Riverwalk, Riverwalk Park and Amphitheater, and it hosts the West Metro Parade of Lights during the holidays and the Rhythm on the River concert series in the summer, both of which have become entertainment traditions in this community. West Columbia is made up of many parks, community centers, and sports complexes, with recreational activities such as hiking, biking, bird watching, kayaking, and more. The River District is a non-profit organization comprised of the city’s merchants and concerned citizens who are interested in growing the local economy. Finally, the City of West Columbia and the West Columbia Beautification Foundation work together to enhance the beauty of West Columbia and make it an attractive place to live, work, and visit through landscaping, beautification projects, expansion of the tree canopy and development of green spaces.
McGuinn Hybrid Homes’ is very proud of its contribution to West Columbia with its Harvest Glen community of homes.
