Fourth of July

When it comes time for a Fourth of July getaway, find yourself in Columbia SC for fireworks, baseball, and a rollicking good time.

If soaking up some sun next to a body of water is how you like to celebrate Independence Day, head to Lake Murray for a very patriotic fireworks showcase, or grab some friends and float down the river. You can rent a boat to cruise around the lake, or hit the Saluda River with kayaks or tubes from Palmetto Outdoors for a laid-back kind of day. 

Craving a hot dog and the sounds of America's favorite pastime? You're in luck! Watch the Lexington Blowfish take on the Glowfish on the 4th at Lexington County Baseball Stadium and cheers to a weekend well spent in the heart of SC with their fireworks show after the 7-inning game.
