If you’ve ever struggled to figure out the best things to do in Columbia on a Friday or Saturday night, there’s a new book for you.

100 Things to Do in Columbia, Missouri, Before You Die by local author Stephen Paul Sayers provides a bucket list of activities, sights and iconic traditions to explore in our community. It’s one in a national series of similar books put out by the St. Louis-based Reedy Press and something Sayers saw as a good opportunity. “It was a really good chance to just pay homage to the city I called home and raised a family for 20 years,” Sayers says.
