About This Spot

For travelers and experience seekers looking for a true Main-Street-America experience, Columbia is 45 minutes south of Nashville, Tennessee featuring a vibrant, historic town square and Main Street that's got great shopping, cool restaurants and live music happening around town. The new Columbia Arts District near downtown will mesmerize you with local, funky, creative artists and makers.

Our community pride and Southern hospitality run deep. Some call us ‘Muletown’ because of the long-standing tradition of Mule Day that happens every April. Our history is pretty amazing, too...you’ll discover the ancestral home of U.S. President James K. Polk.

So come on over, you're welcome here! We hope you'll be enchanted by our city & feel connected to the stories, experiences, and people of Columbia.
