Overall Guide : Downtown Columbia in certain areas is not safe, especially in evening. Many areas in Columbia are relatively safe. Columbia is like most smaller cities in this way. Easy driving to everything in Columbia. Most destinations are 10-30 minutes away from... more each other. Poor bus system. Mizzou campus is very nice.
Not to be missed Mizzou campus , St. Thomas More Newman Center and Parish , MKT Trail
