Information for visitors
Information for residents
Columbia is in Howard
County, a county of contrasts, a successful melding of old and
new, urban and rural, where the rolling green hills of the Piedmont
meet the rocky fall line of the glaciers. It is home to over 168,000
people, a setting where one of the most modern cities in the world
sits side by side with a city older than the republic itself.
We are also surrounded
by several historic
towns such as Savage, Ellicott City, Elkridge, Lisbon, Annapolis,
Frederick, to name a few.
As you can see from the
map, Columbia is 20 minutes
and about 40 from Washington. Annapolis,
Maryland's Capital, is also about 40 minutes away. And if you keep
going East, you will reach the Atlantic coast in about 2 hours, home
to Ocean City, a vacation
resort and Assateague Island,
a national Seashore and home of the wild ponies.
Getting to Columbia by
air is easy since we are only 20 minutes from the Baltimore
Washington International (BWI) airport. Two other major airports
are also in the vicinity - Washington's Ronald
Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Washington
Dulles International (IAD) are 40 and 50 miles away respectively.
For the location of all three airports, view this map.
