The Palmetto Experience eliminates the two biggest things that stop managers from booking corporate trips: lost productivity hours and group booking headaches for tickets and transportation.

Our mission is to get people outdoors by introducing them to parks, programs and playgrounds thorough our event space and waterside recreation activities.

-We have a riverside location that encourages people to explore the Three Rivers Greenway and other local parks.

-We have multiple educational tours that teach people about nature, history and human impacts.

-We have fun activities for adults AND kids to invite people to play outside and to explore more.


RETREATS - Far too many meetings take place in a fixed location on a fixed schedule. The Palmetto Experience strives to break the normal rhythm of the workplace, while still helping it's members be productive, reach their goals and have a shared group experience along the way. This space gives you the option of working WHERE you want, WHEN you want, WHILE doing something fun as a group. There are even options for the entire family to come explore Columbia while your group uses our meeting facility.  

CELEBRATIONS - We have a great space for parties and socials (birthdays, showers, receptions, graduations). The space flows well with room for reception style tables and chair set ups, catering space, gift tables, lounge furniture, scenic river views from the back porch, sound system for background music, TV for slideshows, fun group activity spaces, easy access location and parking, scenic photo locations by the river and a FREE personal day of coordinator for help setting up/planning your event. We can even help you book catering, lodging, recreation and transportation options for your event. This saves you time and $$$.
