The South Carolina Midlands boasts many built-in advantages for sports planners. Columbia is easy to get to from anywhere in the Southeast. Only 10 cities in America have three major Interstates transecting their metropolitan areas, and Columbia is one of them! Our year-round mild climate means events aren’t limited to summer months, and our natural geographic advantages include three major rivers for rowing competitions.
