The Greening of Religions will be held in the Gambrell Building of the University of South Carolina in downtown Columbia. On this area map, Gambrell is the unmarked building between the National Advocacy Center and Greene Street.
Transportation. Columbia Airport code is CAE. It is 7.7 miles from campus/downtown, and most downtown hotels have shuttles. There is no train from the airport, nor any kind of metro train, but you won’t need it for just the conference. If you arrive in town by bus, the station is several blocks from the campus; you’ll probably want to take a cab from there. We have very limited Amtrak passenger service which only arrives and departs around 3AM each morning. The station is downtown, about a mile from campus.
These nearby hotels are within walking distance (1-3 blocks). We see that prices vary widely from one travel site to another so we recommend that you shop places like Expedia, Travelocity, TripAdvisor, etc., before making your reservation. Of course, there are many hotels throughout the Columbia area if you have transportation.
Columbia, South Carolina is “Famously Hot” for our often overly warm weather. But April 1-3 promises to be a treat for those coming in from cooler climes. Dogwoods, azaleas and fruit trees will all be in bloom. It’s always possible that we will have a cool snap at that time, but it’s also possible we will enjoy sandal and short sleeve weather. Be sure to check weather reports before coming – you will not have to pack parkas and snow boots!
Restaurants – visit the Columbia Visitor’s Bureau for a full listing of Columbia’s hundreds of restaurants. Again, many of them will be walking distance from the above hotels and conference site. Greening will provide simple box lunches on Friday and Saturday.
Tourism – Columbia is a destination location for thousands of visitors each year. Among the things which may interest you are:
