Your family will love the amazing Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens. Only seven miles from us and voted best local attraction by readers of The State newspaper, the zoo has more than 2,000 animals, pony rides, animal feedings and a 3-D theater show. Specific timed tickets are required and may be purchased at www.riverbanks.org.
Lake Murray is the hotel's answer to enjoying the outdoors. You can fish and swim from the recreation areas at both ends of the dam, or rent a boat for exploring the many islands and having lunch at Dockside Restaurant: just pull up to the dock and order. Riverbanks zoo, the South Carolina State Museum, and EdVenture are all located minutes from the hotel.
Don't Go Home Without
The hotel's location near USC and downtown means you're just a 15-minute drive down I-26 and I-126 from the city's many museums, including the South Carolina State Museum and the Columbia Museum of Art. EdVenture is sure to be a favorite of families.
Because our convenient hotel's location is near USC, our rooms tend to fill up quickly around the Gamecocks' commencement and football home games at Williams Bryce Stadium downtown. Make sure you book early to ensure you have the room you want near the school.
