Five Points is great if you are looking to drink and has a few good restaurants. Other than that the remaining are stores of various types but nothing much for families at all. Primarily it is more of a collage age hangout area (near the USC campus). There are much better places in Columbia to explore.

A return to your Youth when you hit this spot. A favorite hangout of USC students, there are some fun establishments in the area for most all tastes. We always enjoy one of the sandwich shops.

Five Points has several nice restaurants and bars. Shopping is OK. Great place if you are in college however. But would not go there at night. Traffic can be heavy and parking is a problem.

This area has quite a few shops and some great places to eat! The diversity of the area adds to its appeal. Perfect for a say of shopping followed by dinner and drinks.

We visited Columbia for a week this winter. We went to Five Points each and every day. It is a great place to walk, have some coffee and spend your afternoon. At night, there are great bars where you can go and enjoy some live music. I really loved Five Points, I will definetely come back!

Racist club and restaurant owners who work overtime to keep blacks out of five points. My friend went to a club there, the doorman called him the N word. There are several young white under age kids who are drinking, however they only concerned about arresting the black kids from the historical universities in the areas.

There are many good places to eat and shop in Five Points (Starbucks, Andys, Grilled Teriyaki). Five Points has had some problems in the past but police are always there and security cameras have made it a much safer place.

Pretty good bars, little shops and nightlife is ok. Unfortunately, it is a bit dangerous at night so always travel in groups. I recommend going during the day or evening before dark. Overall I wouldn't recommend, kinda boring and I don't like the crime. I'd recommend the Vista instead...

This was a neat place, with lots of bars to chose from. The night life was pretty fun here. I'm told there are about 15 bars in the area. Only thing I didn't like about the area is that once the bars are closed there isn't really any food close in the area.
