A smallish suburb located roughly halfway between Baltimore, Md and D.C. The median income, as well as the median age of residents (and cost of living) is slowly rising. Best known for its ridiculous literary street names. The example below features actual street names.

A planned community in central Maryland. The vision of James Rouse in the 1960's.

Not a town, not a city, but huge and threatening to take over surrounding areas like Scaggsville and Clarksville, Columbia is also notorious for many nursing homes and being "Suburban Nation".
"Dude, there's nothing to do in Columbia after 9. The only 24/7 place is the 7-11."

A planned city in Maryland of about 100,000 people between Baltimore and DC. Probably one of the most diverse places you can find in this country. You can find every type of person from the rich, to the middle class, to the poor, and a lot of different ethnicities.

Columbia is made up of 10 villages. Some of the apartments in the oldest villages (oakland mills, wilde lake, harpers choice, owen brown, long reach) have high crime due to relocation of public housing from mostly Baltimore but also DC,PG County, and NY. Lotta hispanics in some areas to. But this is seen in all of the Baltimore-Washington burbs, even the richest city in montgomery county (Potomac) has section 8 apartments yup. Oakland Mills is probably the worst part of columbia, feels like a clone of Baltimore City and there's nothing there to do. Due to the growing public housing over the past 20 years and increasing, and more gentrification in baltimore, a lot of people say Columbia will become the next Baltimore City but I doubt that, maybe more like a Yonkers like in NY with a higher crime rate and more money lol.

Columbia is in howard county, which is now ranked the third richest county in the nation. Columbia and Ellicott City together were ranked by money magazine as the #8 best place 2 live. Makes sense since the schools are good and it is right in between 2 cities with a lot of sh*t to do in those cities. But you take the good w/ the bad, you have to deal with a lot of fake people, like lower-middle class pretendin to be rich, or upper middle class pretendin to act "street" like the poor people who live in the apartments down the street lol.
"Columbia? Man Columbia is borin as sh*t aint nothin to do out there"

"There some real ni**as out there, but a lot dem ni**as is rich clowns, they walk around wearin white people clothes and the white people wearin black people clothes"

"Columbia has no indentity, no culture, feels fake"

Poetic name for the Americas, mostly dating from the nineteenth century, a feminized version of Christopher Columbus' name. Also the name of a popular female personification of the United States around that time, particularly before the construction and dedication of the Statue of Liberty; the Columbia Pictures logo is an excellent example of this allegorical figure. Several cities, counties, neighborhoods and institutions in the U.S. have Columbia as or in their name โ€” especially the capital, the District of Columbia. Canada's westernmost province is likewise named British Columbia.
Columbia is also how dumb people spell "Colombia," a friendly and colorful nation in South America that is unfortunately beset by drug-related conflict.
