Northeast Columbia is one of Columbia’s largest suburban areas. Situated northeast of downtown Columbia, this area encompasses both Richland and Kershaw counties and offers well-established neighborhoods as well as new construction. Neighborhoods run the gamut in price with something for everyone. Country Club lifestyles are popular in the Northeast, and golf courses and swim and tennis clubs abound. Northeast Columbia offers dozen upon dozens of neighborhoods in all price ranges. This area of Columbia now stretches well into Kershaw county and offers quick access to Interstate 77 and I 20. Just over 400,000 residents now live in all areas of Richland County and Kershaw County with a current population just under 70,000. Located in Kershaw County and established in 1732, Camden is South Carolina’s oldest inland city. Home of the world-renowned Carolina Cup, steeped in history, and situated under an hour from the Columbia metropolitan area, Camden offers quaint shopping opportunities, varied dining selections, and an appealing small-town lifestyle with an equestrian flavor. Also in the northeast area of Columbia is Blythewood, a traditional rural area that is quickly growing with both residential and commercial development. An easy 30-minute drive to downtown, Blythewood retains a slower pace with few traffic issues. New construction such as Cobblestone Park offers a country club lifestyle while quiet subdivisions with plenty of trees and elbow room are easy to find.
