Columbia

We love Columbia! The area is perfectly located for easy commutes to Baltimore and Washington D.C.

Situated throughout the area are village centers, designed to give residents convenient access to a variety of shopping needs. Most village centers include grocery stores, gas stations, liquor stores, dry cleaners, restaurants, and hair salons.
The Mall in Columbia, located in Town Center, is a large regional shopping mall with five anchor department stores, a multiplex movie theater, and more than 200 stores and restaurants! There are also several other shopping centers conveniently located and greatly varying in the shops offered.


Recreation is a HUGE part of the Columbia lifestyle! The Columbia Association, known to many as "CA," builds, operates and maintains many of the area's recreation facilities including 23 outdoor swimming pools, six indoor pools, two water slides, ice and roller skating rinks, an equestrian center, a sports park with miniature golf, a skateboard park, batting cages, picnic pavilions, clubhouse and playground, three athletic clubs including the 24/7 Supreme Sports Club, numerous indoor and outdoor tennis, basketball, volleyball, squash and racquetball courts, and running tracks.

There are three lakes (Lake Kittamaqundi, Lake Elkhorn, and Wilde Lake) in Columbia surrounded by parkland for sailing, fishing, and boating. There are also 80 miles of paths for jogging, strolling and biking; and 148 tot lots and play areas!

Hear What Residents Love About Columbia

"Our kids loved growing up in Columbia and the schools are great. We also love how easy it is to get onto main roads like 95 and 29 to get to Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington, DC. Excellent location for access to job opportunities, shopping, culture and travel. We love all the great events in Columbia such as the free summer concerts at Centennial Lake, movie nights downtown, 4th of July fireworks and so much more. There are great trails and lakes for walking and biking!" - Yaw and Kate
