Main Street Walking Tours

We are excited to now offer Saturday morning tours of Main Street at Soda City! Start your tour at the Columbia Museum of Art at the corner of Hampton and Main streets and follow our experienced guides to learn more about the fascinating history of this dynamic Columbia district.

Designated as the city’s main thoroughfare since the late 18th century, a portion of Columbia’s Main Street is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as the “Columbia Commercial Historic District.” Bounded by the South Carolina State House to the south and Elmwood Avenue to the north, the corridor boasts history and architectural styles spanning three centuries.
