We LOVE finding family stuff to do around the Columbia area; free is even better! We’ve spent plenty of time in downtown at Riverfront Park, exploring, riding bikes, walking, fishing, picnicking, etc. The other day, for a change, we went to the West Columbia Riverwalk in downtown Columbia. It was great! There are places for wading, fishing, and picnicking. The kids can ride bikes, climb trees, or explore the woody area. Dogs were in the river enjoying the cool refreshing water. There are nice bathrooms and water fountains, as well as an amphitheater that regularly hosts guests.
