Local Resources and Attractions
Columbia Brew Bus
The best way to tour and taste Columbia's craft breweries and distilleries! Hop on with some friends and let the good times and bus roll! Be sure to check out our different tours and events!
Columbia Brew Bus was founded by good friends Chris Campbell, Mike de Kozlowski, and Cam Powell.
We all met while attending the University of South Carolina here in Columbia and became fast friends through our love of sports, comedy, and especially beer. When Swamp Cabbage announced their launch as the city’s third full-production brewery back in 2014, we saw an opportunity to connect Columbia residents and tourists alike with the budding craft beer scene in a fun and safe transport method. As our contemporaries from school graduated and left the city, for one reason or another, we all stayed. Columbia is our home, and we want to provide its residents and tourists with an entertainment option that they can be proud of and not have to travel to other Southeastern cities for a similar experience. We’re a company that is passionate about the service we provide and want to help see Columbia’s craft beer scene continue to grow. We look forward to seeing you on a tour soon!
The Hub for Arts & Entertainment
The Vista sits on the banks of the Congaree River. From kayaking to checking out the shoreline, the river’s beauty is a unique asset to the district. Stroll or bike on the Vista Greenway, an urban oasis, which connects the Vista to other city neighborhoods. Catch indie acts at Music Farm, the South Carolina Philharmonic at the Koger Center, or major artists on tour at Colonial Life Arena. With this district’s roots in visual artists, the Vista is home to nearly a dozen galleries with works by local and internationally renowned artists. Don’t miss EdVenture, one of the top children’s museums in the country, and the South Carolina State Museum with its new Planetarium. From unique wedding venues to Columbia’s finest hotels and acclaimed restaurants, the Vista is your home for celebrating special moments. In the heart of Columbia, the Vista is adjacent to the South Carolina State House and the University of South Carolina, and our historic Governor’s mansion is easily accessible from the district. In addition to learning more about our state’s rich history, visitors can engage with amazing and interactive exhibits at the South Carolina State Museum, and the youngest fans of the Vista love hands-on exhibits at EdVenture Children’s Museum. Do all of this and more in the Vista!

Workshop Theatre is supported in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Workshop is also a member of and receives funding from a Tier III grant made possible by contributors to the United Arts Fund of the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties.
