Visiting The Region

The Capital City/Lake Murray Country region in South Carolina delivers inspiration, relaxation and discovery in the central part of the Palmetto State, convenient to Interstates I-77, I-20 and I-26. In the four-county region anchored by Columbia and the surrounding counties of Lexington, Newberry, Richland and Saluda you’ll find hiking/biking trails, wineries, culinary delights and farmers markets, antebellum homes, golf, gardens and museums. Timeless icons like the Newberry Opera House, one of the oldest in the country, and Town Theater, in its 102nd season, make up part of the heritage and culture of this area. Stretching across the region is Lake Murray, 41 miles long and encompassing 620 miles of shoreline. Remarkable fishing, sailing, sunrises and sunsets await, along with lakeside accommodations, paddle boarding, pontoon boats and more.
