Shiloh Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Shiloh, located south of downtown Columbia, is not far from the convergence of the Three Rivers in Downtown Columbia. The Saluda River is a natural scenic waterway from the Saluda Dam all the way to Columbia and is a favorite for swimming and wading on hot summer days. The Broad River and Saluda River come together to form the Congaree River, and there are river walks with shopping, restaurants, and clubs. The Broad River has several boat ramp areas, and canoes and fishing boats are often seen in near Downtown. It is also not far from the University of South Carolina.
The area features single-family homes as well as apartments, townhomes, and condos. The homes are around the median price for the Greater Columbia area. Most are three to four bedrooms, although there are several that are larger.
With comfortable weather most of the year, the outdoors is a big part of the Columbia area lifestyle. Lake Murray is a short drive north of Downtown Columbia and is a large manmade reservoir that offers fishing, swimming, boating, camping, and more along its 670 miles of shoreline. Harbison State Forest is just nine miles north of downtown along Broad River and has more than 2,000 acres of forest filled with walking paths, picnic areas, classroom opportunities, and wildlife.
Columbia is home to the Gamecocks of the University of South Carolina. Williams-Brice Stadium is awash in garnet and black on game day Saturdays, with more than 50,000 fans rooting on the Gamecocks as they battle their way through the South Eastern Conference. Tickets are hard to come by, but everybody congregates at viewing parties to watch and have a couple of beverages.
