What Bert Has To Say About Columbia Metro Area


Columbia is home to the University of Missouri and two smaller colleges. The area has a distinct college-town feel and most of the amenities that you would expect in a college town. Columbia also has an economic base in the insurance and medical technology industries. The downtown is clean and lively, the population is friendly and progressive; some say it is the Midwest with just a slight hint of the South. For a town with this profile, Columbia features a low cost of living and promising future job growth projections. There are plenty of recreational opportunities on and off campus, including a large state-of-the-art water park, but some complain things get pretty slow (and hot and sticky) in summers when the students leave town.
