Why live in South Carolina?

Palmetto treeAs South Carolinians, we take great pleasure in our widely diversified state with its rich history

We have much to offer -- museums, theaters, zoos, gardens, miles of public beaches, salt marshes, sand hills, pine belts, and mountains -- all within a three-hour drive of our state capital, Columbia, in the center of our state.

South Carolina's unique blend of casual suburban living, close-knit, hospitable rural areas, constant cultural and social activity and a state legislature committed to providing quality education make it an excellent place to live and to rear children.

South Carolina is a good place to live, play and work.

It's a land of beautiful places and smiling faces.
