South Carolina is a state in the United States of America and is part of the American South. It is known for its diverse geography from the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Upstate to its subtropical beaches and marshlike sea islands along the coast.
Just south of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Upcountry of the state is the city of Greenville, an up and coming metropolitan city with numerous restaurants and stores located in a charming downtown. An hour southeast of Greenville is the capital city of Columbia which is also home to the main campus of the University of South Carolina. The original capital and now the largest city in the state is coastal Charleston, a historic port city about an hour and thirty minutes southeast of the capital. It is defined by pastel-colored houses, Old South plantations and Fort Sumter, where the Civil War’s opening shots were fired. To the north of Charleston is the Grand Strand, a roughly 60-mile stretch of beachfront known for golf courses and the vacation town of Myrtle Beach. At the far southern tip of the state is the Goldern Corner which is home to the sea islands of Hilton Head and Seabrook.
