Welcome to Columbia! Glad you are staying with us.
Columbia has lots of great local restaurants -- Murrays is a great dinner spot for a small group, the onion rings are to die for. Booches is a long-time staple for burgers, beer, and has a fun history. Make sure to have cash as they don’t take cards. If you are in the mood for Italian, Pasta Factory is a great choice and near the hotel.
If you’re looking for a little fun, right across the street, in Columbia Mall is Level Up Entertainment (bowling, arcade games, and a bar). It’s a great place to blow off some steam.
If you want some fresh air, take a walk-through Shelter Gardens right by the Missouri REALTORS® building.
