State / Provincial Park
“Columbia is a historic town that brings you back to the mid-1800's. There are many activities to do there throughout the year, but is always fun just to take a walk around in. The Candy Kitchen isn't to be missed. Take a ride on the old stage coach, and then have dinner in one of the local restaurants.”
