Living Here

From sweet tea to boiled peanuts to an obsession with Garnet and Black, there’s a lot about Central South Carolina that makes us one of a kind.

Our Southern way of life means we take time to stop and savor the things that make our region unique. A rich local history provides musical, artistic, and historical entertainment for all tastes, while a population of nearly 1 million brings eclectic restaurants and cultures. With quaint neighborhoods nestled throughout city scenery, residents find themselves at home on back porches, busy streets, and forest trails. Homegrown hospitality means you’ll find yourself sharing a cup of sugar with your neighbors, enjoying an afternoon of boating with your coworkers, playing a round of golf with your friends, or watching an award-winning ballet with your family.
