South Carolina is known for its wide range of scenic attractions, depth of history, and its traditional Southern charm. It is a small state, ranking only 40th in size; yet it packs a lot within its 30,000 square miles, and offers a lot for retirees as well.

The seacoast is renowned and popular, stretching from charming Beaufort at one corner of the state to vibrant Myrtle Beach at the other. From the coast, the land rises slowly through a region of moss-covered oaks and small towns, to the higher piedmont and the capital of Columbia. The hilly Upstate region and the bustling cities of Greenville and Spartanburg continue on to the Blue Ridge Mountains along the border with neighboring North Carolina. Hilton Head Island has become a famous resort town, receiving attention for frequent visits from former President Bill Clinton and family.

Spend a day or two in South Carolina, and you may quickly understand the state slogan "smiling faces and beautiful places." There are more reasons to retire in South Carolina than just the beautiful scenery and friendly residents. The state also boasts low property taxes and zero state estate tax. An increasing number of retirees have also been moving to the state for its warm summers, mild winters, and slower pace of life.
