Re: columbia missouri

Tricia, I am very familiar with Columbia as my Mother lived there for the 
last 25 years of her life and my sister and her family still live there. It is a 
beautiful area at the foot of the Ozarks with some really great streams to 
'float". In my younger years when i lived in St. Louis we made some wonderful 
memories camping and floating the Current, the Huzzah,and the Meramec in our 
canoe. Columbia is a college town with all the cultural advantages that brings. 
The biggest of course is Mizzou but Stephens and Columbia College are also 
there. The hospital associated with the U of M is well respected. I haven't used 
the airport for some time but I think it is pretty good for that size town. I 
know there is a regular shuttle to the St. Louis airport. My sister is owner of 
Apple School which is a wonderful preschool they started in 1988. They also 
accept older children after school and in the summer. Columbia is not quite 2 
hours from St. Louis which offers just about anything you want. I love the zoo 
and the botanical gardens are fabulous.Just north of StL. is Hannibal, Mark 
Twain's home. Just south is Six Flags (oh goody). Seems to me they are zone 6 for 
gardens. I know they are always about 10 days ahead of me in bloom times. Can 
you tell I think this is a great town? Hope this helps. Kathy
