Town of Columbia

The small town of Columbia, located approximately 45 miles west of the Outer Banks, is a rising star along the central North Carolina coastline. An anchor of the informally named “Inner Banks” region, this small community of less than 1,000 residents is slowly becoming a destination all its own, even landing a feature article in North Carolina’s renowned Our State Magazine. The sudden growing interest is due to a number of features, not the least of which are breathtaking scenery, incredible wildlife, and a host of attractions, both old and new, that are ripe for exploring.
