Capital City/Lake Murray Country, SC

Pack up the family and set sights on an adventure to remember with a trip to Capital City/Lake Murray Country, South Carolina.

The beautiful Midlands region is conveniently located off Interstates I-77, I-26 and I-20 in the central part of the Palmetto state. From boat rentals and paddleboard excursions, to zip lining at a nationally recognized zoo to big city entertainment and dining in the heart of downtown Columbia, embark on a memory-making voyage that both the kids and grown-ups will want to re-visit again and again.

First, check out Lake Murray Vacation Rentals for sprawling houses or the perfect quaint bungalow for your family's stay. Or, check into a cozy cabin on Dreher Island State park three-island outdoor wonderland that spans 12 miles of Lake Murray's shore. Once you've unloaded the bags at your waterfront escape, head down to Lake Murray Boat Club for a boat rental. Whether your crew feels the need for speed or desires to float the days away on a big pontoon, guests will soon discover why Boating Magazine named Lake Murray as one of the "top 10 boating destinations and places to live" in the country. Spend the day exploring the 50,000 acres of sparkling waters that make up "The Jewel of South Carolina."
