South Carolina Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to South Carolina!
South Carolina defines southern hospitality. If the South Carolina Upcountry, with its scenic mountains and forest habitat - or the South Carolina Coast, shouldering the Atlantic Ocean and boasting some of the freshest fish in the country, doesn't bring you back to South Carolina then the people and the atmosphere surely will. Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, is situated in the South Carolina Heartland and is an industrial powerhouse of the state that maintains a hometown air. A city preserved in time, Charleston is located near the South Carolina Coast and is the epitome of charm, complete with narrow, cobbled streets. Another coastal city, Myrtle Beach is a part of the Grand Strand and is a haven for golfers, swimmers and other recreational enthusiasts. Hilton Head Island lies off the coast of South Carolina and offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy a variety of aquatic activities as well as a number of golf courses.
