Columbia is South Carolina’s capital city, and this busy metropolitan area has a long and colorful history dating from 1786, when “Columbia” won out over “Washington” for the name of this new city. With a population of more than 130,000, Columbia is the second largest city in the state, and a favorite venue for arts and music festivals and performances.
Because it’s home to a long list of soft drink bottlers, Columbia is often called “Cola City” or “Soda City.” But it’s also one of South Carolina cities hardest hit by surging rates of both street and prescription drugs, with opiates leading an epidemic of substance abuse and overdose deaths.
