To some it has the reputation of combining the quality and culture of larger metropolitan areas with the warm hospitality of the South. Columbia lies in the heart of the Little Dixie region of Missouri. Columbia is frequently ranked on various "top places" in the United States lists, such at Money Magazine's annual lists.
The city is home to the University of Missouri–Columbia, the flagship campus of the University of Missouri System. The city is also home to Stephens College, a traditionally-female college, and Columbia College, which led in the past to Columbia being known by the nickname "College Town USA".
As a whole the city has a very young and active population. The downtown area is self-proclaimed as "Mid-Missouri's cultural and entertainment center, featuring a diversity of restaurants, bars, live music, and independent films." Downtown is also host to many events including the True/False Film Festival, Art in the Park, The Blind Boone Ragtime and Early Jazz Festival, and the Twilight Festivals in June and September. Recently an association of downtown business has initiated a campaign to rename the downtown area to "The District" though this naming has yet to catch on among locals. The population generally supports progressive causes such as the extensive city recycling programs and the decriminalization of marijuana at the municipal level. Politically the city leans to the left, however Boone County did support President George W. Bush in the 2004 election.
