Moving to South Carolina

History, Geography, Homes, and State Resources of South Carolina

Relocating to South Carolina suggests relocating to a state rich in traditions which continues to be felt and seen within its cities today. There's Columbia, the state capital with its huge US Army presence, revitalized downtown and many colleges; Charleston, featuring the nation's oldest historic district; plus the manufacturing hub of the state, North Charleston.

With its Hilton Head Island, Grand Strand and Myrtle Beach the South Carolina coastline possesses some of the finest beaches, memorable golf courses and top resorts in the country. Although as you’ll discover when relocating to South Carolina, which is the smallest state in the Deep South is a gentle giant when you come down to culture and history. From where the initial shots of the American Civil War began, Fort Sumter, to downtown Charleston historic district where the oldest standing theater in the nation is located, South Carolina remains the personification of the nation's South.

Additionally, you can relocate to Myrtle Beach, or Hilton Head Island which are both prominent beach resorts, or discover Sumter, where Shaw Air Base is located. There is Greenville, with its numerous events and festivals, and if you enjoy a congenial commuter community, take a look at Rock Hill, Mount Pleasant or Summerville.

South Carolina, officially separated from North Carolina in 1729, was the scene of extensive military action during the Revolution and again during the Civil War. The Civil War began in 1861 as South Carolina troops fired on federal Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, and the state was the first to secede from the Union.
