About two miles away is Perche Creek Golf Club with an 18-hole par-3 course. Perce Creek also has a driving range, mini-golf course, batting cages, and Go Karts – a perfect place to escape on a summer’s evening. As a bonus, the front nine holes are lit.
A comprehensive mall is also close by. Columbia Mall has four major department stores: JC Penney, Dillard’s, Sears, and Target. There is also an Ann Taylor Loft, a Barnes and Noble, and many eateries.
Cosmo Park is just north of Columbia Mall. This vast park has a golf course and recreation complex, the ARC, along with an off-leash dog area.
A short drive south is Hinkson Woods Conservation Area, with fishing in Hinkson Creek and archery hunting for deer. The trail at Hinkson Woods connects to MKT Trail and is a good trail for hiking and biking. Twenty acres of the park have been planted to native grass and wildflowers.
Rock Bridge State Park is about a half-hour’s drive away. It’s a great place to spend the day, exploring the caves or trails. The Park has a total of 25 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.
Downtown, in what is known locally as The District, is a multi-block area of historic buildings and nationally acclaimed entertainment sites. Two of the top spots are The Blue Note, and Flat Branch Pub and Brewery.
