Congaree Vista is a cosmopolitan section of Columbia, South Carolina, on the banks of the Congaree River which was revitalized during the late 1990s and early 2000s. The section includes many small, high-class shops and restaurants. "The Vista," as it is known by locals, is centered on the city's old train station, which has been converted into The Blue Marlin, a casual dining restaurant. Also in this area is the historic Adluh Flour Mill, one of the few productive remnants of the district's industrial past which is often photographed for its uniqueness in architecture and location. The Vista is constantly expanding due to support from both the City of Columbia and the State of South Carolina. Columbia's Congaree Vista continues to be a center of both history and culture to the residents of South Carolina.
