I have been coming to Columbia, MO for years and I finally moved up here. I love that I have the option to be in the city and enjoy the shopping downtown and in the mall. I also love the diversity being that it is a college town. There are also some great parks to go to when you want to get away and enjoy what nature has to offer in here Mid-MO. There are many sports events that anybody if able to go to and concerts as well. There is something for everyone to do here in the city!
There is always something to do in Columbia, Missouri! Home to the University of Missouri, you can find students year round studying on campus or enjoying the shopping downtown. There are beautiful parks and lakes to explore on your days off, and the city is very walkable!
City with broad range of social groups and people from all walks of life. Housing is too expensive because of 3 universities in town, and more affordable housing is found in old neighborhoods needing community outreach badly. There is a wonderful local vibe in downtown and in many of the shopping areas and parks, but it is often overcrowded with college students at peak times. Very safe and friendly in some parts and not so much in others. Needs a serious look at communities and areas that have fallen behind the higher demand central locations.
