Columbia is a hub of exquisite, live entertainment. Town Theatre is an old beatiful theatre that's perfect for you and your girlfriends. They range from comedies to musicals to heartbreaking dramas and everything in between. Workshop Theatre attracts many of the area's most talented actors, directors, and technicians. Trustus Theatre is one of the best places to see a raunchy, side splitting, or tear jerking performance. They're not afraid to push the limits and their fall lineup shows just that with Rock of Ages, Sex on Sunday, and Black Super Hero Magic Mama. Outside of Columbia you have the Chapin Theatre, always full of witty and moving performances.
Round your girls up and take a self-guided tour (i.e. walk) through each of Columbia's old neighborhoods.

Don't have time or just have mismatching schedules for a trip out of town with your girlfriends? Take a day-trip with them to boost your spirit because nobody can make you feel as great as your best friends can! Explore nature and leave all of your electronics at home...or just back in your car. Rent a canoe and sail down the river, catching up with your friends as you take in the nature around you. Or take a hike through the Congaree National Forest, listen to the birds, find cool wildflowers, sit by the creek and figure out what's best for your lives. The most important thing is to forget about work and responsibilities and everything else life throws at you and just relax out with your best friends.
