Re: Really excited to visit the other Columbia!
A couple from me: despite what you hear, 5 Points is fine for a family to go during the day. Good restaurants and some good shops, too. Yesterday's is a Columbia institution - good food and if you go, don't miss the Hootie sculpture outside. Pawley's Front Porch (also in 5 Points) has killer burgers - hasn't been around nearly as long as Yesterday's, but the food is very good. Welcome! Hope you have a great visit (other than the outcome of the game, of course :)
