Things To Do Around Columbia, Missouri
There are loads of delicious places to eat when you are in Columbia.

When you're downtown be sure to check out Uprise Bakery or Main Squeeze.

If you are looking to shoot some pool while grabbing a burger, both Booches and Billiards on Broadway are local favorites. Be sure to try out each and see whose burger you like best!​

Going out of the downtown area, 44 Stone Public House is a must try (be sure to bring your stretchy pants). There is also Shakespeare's Pizza, with three locations around Columbia to fill your pizza needs.

And, while this is technically not a restaurant, if you want an awesome cookie be sure to head in to Hot Box Cookies, a locally owned business that has several types of cookies readily available (they even deliver).
Columbia, MO boasts an extensive trail system that creates an over 30 mile loop with additional interconnected pathways that are both paved and made of crushed limestone. The MKT trail, which has been rated as 2nd best in the nation for "Best Urban Trail", starts in downtown Columbia winding 8.9 miles west from the city, eventually connecting to the Katy Trail. The Katy Trail is the longest developed rail-trail in the country built upon what was the Missouri-Kansas-Texas railway. Now it is a 240 mile long limestone path that goes between Saint Louis and Kansas City.

Just south of town is Rock Bridge Memorial State Park, home of Devil's Icebox. Hiking trails are available around Devil's Icebox as well as in the surrounding Gans Creek Wild Area. There are multiple sinkholes around these trails, so do be careful to pay attention to signs that warn to stay back from sunken areas.
If you would prefer to workout indoors, want to take a class, or pump some iron, Columbia has many venues to choose from.

The Armory offers both Qi-Gong and TaiChi classes free of charge. Both classes are at 8:30 am with TaiChi being Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Qi-Gong being Tuesday and Thursday.

Within the same buidling as Uprise Bakery, you can find the RagTag Cinema, a non-profit independent movie theater that shows many films before they become available mainstream.

If you want to set your inner artist free, be sure to go hang out with Monty at Paint The Town as he leads you through painting something with him or guides you in painting something that has been rolling around in your mind.
