Spring is here! Warm water is near! Hundreds of people from across the nation come to the Cayce, Springdale, and West Columbia areas each summer for our whitewater rapids. We have three, yes 3 big rivers offering fishing, tubing, canoeing, kayaking (home to the unique Spider Lily Kayak Trip in May), and nature photography. With more than 20 miles of safe walking trails, the Riverwalk has many access points. Looking for a big adventure? Contact Palmetto Outdoor to outfit your canoe trip, water tubing and even fishing advice! Palmetto Outdoor has several types of water tubes that can accommodate beginners and even your dog. Whitewater tubing is available from Memorial Day to Labor Day! For a slower pace, you can canoe down the Congaree National Park with a guide from Palmetto Outdoor. You’ll want to stay close to all the water action in Cayce and West Columbia, where you can Explore Local and eat at one of our farm to table restaurants, quaint cafes, or delis. Another reason to Stay Local is a bird watching vacation in the heart of the bird activity on the Rivers. Click below for a Bird Adventure vacation package! Nature photographers, both amateur and professional, “flock” to our area for a wide variety of species including eagles, owls, and hawks. Everyone will want to take a selfie at the West Columbia Interactive Art Park, where each Saturday from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, local crafts and food is sold at the Meeting Street Art Market, as well as the Cayce River Arts District. Click here for a list of murals! Need something for the kids to do? Check out the Town of Springdale splash park! Also, join the kids in finding natural sculptures along the Cayce Riverwalk. Our area is your central spring and summer headquarters, whether you’re looking for the river, attending the Masters Golf Tournament, a concert at Colonial Life Arena, Columbia Speedway Entertainment Center, or a University of South Carolina baseball game at Founders Park (we’re less than 1 mile away from the park!). before you leave, shop for a souvenir at a local art gallery or one of our many antiques stores!
