Charleston, SC is an Artsy Place To Live

Charleston, SC is an Artsy Place To Live

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 06, 2018

Abberly at West Ashley Apartments, Charleston, SCSouth Carolina isn't the first place that comes to mind when you think about the arts. However, the state has hidden pockets of cultural wealth that will rival big art markets like New York and San Francisco. These are the five best cities in South Carolina for the Arts.

  1. Edgefield
  2. Greenville
  3. Beaufort
  4. Myrtle Beach
  5. Charleston

Charleston, SC

Charleston is considered by some to be art in itself. The old city has seen its share of beauty and pain, misery and joy, peace and turmoil. Besieged by war and the place of human trafficking, Charleston's history is just as colorful as some of the homes in the area. Despite this, Charleston is home to some of the most beautiful art in the world. The Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts is one of many organizations dedicated to creating thriving art communities in Charleston. Home to the Spoleto Festival, Charleston opens her doors for 17 days and nights to showcase opera, jazz, theater, symphonic and chamber music/ The venues include Charleston's historic churches, theaters, and outdoor spaces. For over 40 years, Charleston has used Spoleto to advance performing arts. Founded by a Pulitzer Prize winning composer to create an American counterpart to Italy's Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy, Charleston's Spoleto Festival immerses the entire city into the pursuit of art. What could be better than visiting Spoleto? How about living in Charleston year round? It's not hard to move to Charleston. All you have to do is decide which great community will be your next home. Your only decision is which one is best for you.

Charleston, SC Makes Living Easy

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 26, 2018

Abberly at West Ashley Apartments, Charleston, SCThere's a place for everyone in the Palmetto State, and plenty to pique any area of interest.

Living in South Carolina comes with dozens of advantages – a mild climate, an affordable cost of living and plenty of job opportunities, just to name a few. Residents enjoy an unparalleled quality of life that makes putting down roots in the Palmetto State an easy choice.

In addition, the state is filled with diverse cities and communities that cater to nearly every interest, which means there’s a perfect place for just about everyone.

Top Spots for All Ages and Stages of Life

Charleston is a favorite destination for millennials, thanks to its technology-driven, entrepreneurial economy, as well as its wide variety of nightlife and cuisine options. Finally, South Carolina is also a top choice for retirees.

Always Something Fun to Do

The Palmetto State is known for its can’t-miss culinary scene, which includes an array of barbecue joints. Known to many as the birthplace of American barbecue, South Carolina is the only state in the U.S. that has four official barbecue sauces, including a mustard-based sauce that is unique to the state. A free South Carolina BBQ Trail Map with more than 220 family-friendly restaurants is available for those who wish to try every 'cue variety the state has to offer.

Additionally, South Carolina is home to several craft breweries, wineries and other beverage-makers, creating drinks like sweet tea and Blenheim Ginger Ale. As a result, the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism – also known as Discover South Carolina – recently created the free South Carolina Satisfy Your Thirst Tour Guide that maps out a beverage-centric excursion across the state and is available via a smartphone app and a downloadable map.

“The Satisfy Your Thirst SC Tour is a collection of the numerous ‘liquid locations’ found throughout the state, including both alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages,” says Kim Jamieson, public relations manager for Discover South Carolina. “From breweries and distilleries to wineries, dairy farms and more, the Satisfy Your Thirst SC Tour provides resourceful information for visitors and locals alike on the many beverages made right here in South Carolina, as well as details on how they can tour, taste and support the state’s many outstanding and talented makers.”

Eager to enjoy the great outdoors? You’re in luck. South Carolina has a seemingly endless range of outdoor opportunities, including challenging golf courses, pristine beaches, mountains and state parks.

One of the best attributes of South Carolina is the size of the state.  A visitor can experience the Lowcountry and in the same day travel to the Upstate and have a very different experience. From our numerous outdoor activities and offerings to our unique art scene, diverse culture, delicious cuisine and rich history, the state truly has something for everyone.

Living in the Lowcountry South Carolina

Living in the Lowcountry South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Abberly at West Ashley Apartments, Charleston, SCThere are no big cities in South Carolina. Even Charleston is much more similar to the vibe of a small town than it is a big city. That’s what helps preserve the charm of South Carolina. With an undeniable character marked by palmetto trees and ethereal dangling moss, wrought iron accents to the architecture, signature hospitality, and friendly smiles from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Lowcountry, South Carolina is Southern living at its finest.

Local Flavor: South Carolinians Never Need An Excuse To Get Dapper

But they certainly won’t pass one up, either. In South Carolina, women get dressed in their best classic pastels, Lilly, and hats while men break out the seersucker and bow ties for events like Polo matches, Marsh Tacky, and the big man on equestrian campus: The Carolina Cup. Men and Women of South Carolina even take full advantage of days like National Seer Sucker Day to celebrate and display a love for Southern and South Carolina traditions and just plain looking good.

Cuisine: The South Carolina Barbeque Is Better And The Peaches Are More Plentiful

Anyone who moves to South Carolina will notice a lot of new additions to their daily menus including classically southern staples like shrimp and grits, biscuits, boiled peanuts, blue crabs, and hush puppies. Don’t forget to douse it all in generous amounts of hot sauce before washing it all down with a sweet tea. Peaches are big here too. Even though they’re synonymous with Georgia, South Carolina actually produces more of them and they’re amazing. But if you’re looking for that one true South Carolina dish, then you have to grab a plate of their barbecue. This mustard-based goodness takes the southern classic and makes it something all their own.

Nightlife: South Carolina Shows You A Laid Back Good Time

You won’t find the bright lights and never ending night scene of places like Las Vegas or New York City. This is South Carolina, where life is laid back and everyone has to be up early in the morning for work, church, or brunch. But that doesn’t mean that people here don’t know how to have a good time. If you’re invited to an oyster roast, cancel everything and go. You’ll have one of the best nights of your week and make some new friends while you’re at it. As for a night out on the town, you’ll find your time spent mostly around the many local restaurants, bars, taverns, and pubs where you can kick back and relax with friends while enjoying some of the awesome local craft beer.

Weather: South Carolina Is The East Coast Paradies

The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions of the East Coast are usually either blanketed in heat or snow. The Southern coastal states are just marked by stifling heat. But South Carolina falls right in the perfect pocket, giving them one of the best climates along the coast. Summers do get hot and humid, with July highs ranging from the high 80s to the mid-90s and the humidity can sometimes make you feel like you’re swimming on dry land. But the spring and the fall are glorious and the mild temperatures of the winter make those summer months well worth it. January highs hover around the high 50s and low 60s across almost the whole state and have lows that rarely dip below freezing. You might see the occasional snowflake fall from the sky but it’s rarely more than passing flurries.

Commute: Horns Honk Less In South Carolina

All those laid back vibes throughout South Carolina make getting around the state better than a cool breeze on a summer day. Although you do need a car to get around the Palmetto State, you won’t waste your life away in it. The average commute time for the state overall is 23.2 minutes, which is nearly two minutes under the national average.

Cost Of Living: South Carolina’s Price Tag Is Almost Too Good To Be True

Many places around South Carolina provide a high quality of living, which would make most people assume that it is an expensive place to live. But it’s not. In fact, the cost of living index in South Carolina is 92, and that’s 8 points lower than the national cost of living index of 100. Housing is the most affordable part about living here. So you can take those extra dollars and spend some having fun around South Carolina and save the rest for a rainy day.

Memories Are Made At South Carolina Beaches

Although winters aren’t long and cold in South Carolina the way they are farther up north, there’s still no more exciting time in South Carolina than spring. It’s the time when the famous coastline comes back to life and everyone can get ready for their family vacations. The beaches here aren’t just for tourists—everyone across the state enjoys the coastline. Myrtle Beach is the most prominent resort area with over 60 miles of shoreline but there are plenty of other beaches to enjoy including Hilton Head Island, North Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach, Isle of Palms, Garden City, and Sullivans Island, among others.

The Differences Of Lowcountry And Upstate

South Carolina isn’t just resort beaches. The state is also differentiated by Lowcountry and Upstate South Carolina. Although the areas do share many similarities and South Carolina traditions, they have distinct things that set them apart. Low Country is marked by marshy lands where you’ll find a strong Gullah influence, much more closely related to a stereotypical Georgia, especially around St. Helena Island. This is the area where you’ll find thicker accents, a lot of antebellum and postbellum homes, and a festival to celebrate everything from the endangered gopher tortoise to catfish, rice, watermelon, and more. Upstate South Carolina is located to the northwest region of the state with the city of Greenville being the most prominent of all of its destinations.
