    Columbia and the surrounding area has the best trail system! There are many neighborhoods that allow one to just get on foot or on your bike and not only get great exercise, but enjoy doing so with an amazing view on an amazing trail. I know I do!

    You'll see many people of all ages doing the same. Families with children in strollers, people training for triathlons, people casually walking by themselves or with others, and people walking or running with their dogs. You'll go by Twin Lakes, where you'll find a dog park, swimming area, and fishing area. You'll find access to downtown's Flat Branch Park and District. Personally, I love it! It's free. It's invigorating. It feels happy and it's easy.

    If you're a wine-lover, you'll love riding to the winery in Rocheport. You'll enjoy the bluffs along the Missouri River. It's a soft and warm approach to really living in your neighborhood!

    One of my favorite local institutions is the Columbia Public Library. Our local library is the headquarters for the Daniel Boone Regional Library (DBRL) which serves Boone and Callaway Counties and the City of Columbia. The library is located at 100 West Broadway in an attractive and architecturally interesting building completed in 2002.

    According to the mission statement "DBRL connects our communities to the world of information and ideas". Besides a world class collection of books, reference materials, and other media, the library offers a robust array of programs and services for adults, teens, and children. Internet access, meeting rooms, taxpayer assistance, tutoring, book discussions, storytime, movies, storytellers, musicians and other performers, are just a few of the many free resources and programs available to everyone.

    A recent client who is relocating to Columbia from a large metropolitan area reminded me of another aspect of our local library we take for granted. She loved the "Perk Desk" with its fresh brewed coffee, fresh baked goods, and snacks. And she couldn't believe the relaxed welcoming atmosphere that allowed her to enjoy her coffee while browsing the library. She
    said that would never happen where she comes from. Columbia Public Library is just one more reason Columbia, MO is a great place to call home.

  • During the winter months, it can be hard to find activities for the kids when it's too cold to play outside. Thankfully, Columbia has several fun indoor options. I discovered Tiger Bounce this past weekend, Columbia's newest indoor play facility- my five year old bounced and laughed to her heart's content in the indoor bounce houses and was fast asleep on the way home. Success!

    Here are some other local favorites for cold dreary days:
    Bowling- Town and Country Lanes 1508 N. Providence
    Paint the Town- They supply the canvas, you paint. 2703 E. Broadway
    Columbia Public Library- 100 W. Broadway
    Mud Room- Paint your own pottery studio. 1103 E. Walnut
    Going Bonkers- Huge indoor play place and arcade. 3812 Buttonwood Drive
    Tiger Bounce- Indoor bounce houses. 3601 Buttonwood Drive

    Columbia is home to a vibrant arts community with strong representation in all kinds of media. If you enjoy independent film then you'll definitely want to visit Ragtag Cinema located at 10 Hitt Street in downtown Columbia. According to their website "Ragtag's mission is to champion independent film and media art and to serve film communities both locally and globally."

    Ragtag is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization that operates an arthouse theater 365 days a year, and the internationally acclaimed True/False documentary film festival.

    Columbia has so many great restaurants it seems almost unfair to rank one as my favorite, but, The Wine Cellar & Bistro located at 505 Cherry Street is a special place. Craig and Sarah Cyr have been wowing diners there for over a decade with wonderful entrees, amazing wines, and stellar special events.

    From the beginning, the Cyrs have focused on using locally grown and sustainable ingredients in their offerings. The last couple of years they've taken that concept to a whole new level with their Garden Project. For a very modest fee you can attend up to 15 different classes in organic gardening taught by local experts at the Cyr's farm. The classes include hands on work in the Cyr's garden followed by a home cooked meal prepared by Chef Craig with a wine pairing selected by Sommelier Sarah. As the season progresses many of the ingredients for the meals come directly from the Cyr's garden.

    If you decide to visit the Wine Cellar and Bistro I'm certain you'll enjoy the outstanding regular menu, but be sure to also consider attending one of their special events. From time to time Sarah teaches wine tasting classes, holds wine tastings from amazing wineries, and combines Craig's wonderful cooking with her wine selections for special wine themed dinners. Imagine an 8 course dinner paired with 8 different wines with each wine described by the importer who personally visited the wineries in Italy and selected the wines. If that sounds fun to you be sure and check out the Wine Cellar and Bistro.

    One of the great things about living in Columbia is the many wonderful recreational opportunities available. Columbia has over 3,100 acres of park land. There are 83 parks, green spaces, and recreation facilities in the city. One of my favorites is Stephens Lake Park.

    The property has a rich history dating back to the 1800's when David Gordon settled there. Captain Gordon was one of the founders of the Smithton community that in 1821 became Columbia. In 1926, Stephens College acquired the property and built a 9 hole golf course. The city acquired the property in 2001 thus preserving a part of Columbia's history and providing its citizens with a wonderful community asset.

    The park encompasses 116 acres and includes an 11 acre lake with swimming beach. There are numerous shelters, a pavilion, walking and biking trails, an amphitheater, sledding hill, and other amenities; even WiFi. Activities include swimming, boating, fishing, sledding, and picnicking. Enjoy concerts, festivals, and events such as Art in the Park and the Roots N Blues Music Festival.
