The Avenues District in West Columbia is just across the river via the Gervais Street Bridge. Tree-lined streets with neat, attractive small homes define the Avenues. When West Columbia grew from the river, the Avenues became the premier residential area with each street designed by letter such as D Avenue and C Avenue. Now young families, students, and professionals have moved into these homes, breathing new life into this lovely residential area. Convenient to the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, the Avenues District is also close to a made-on-site Krispy Kreme for those late-night cravings as well as popular restaurants on State Street, across the bridge from the Vista.
