The capitol is Columbia, again making South Carolina well-known by being one of the worst capitols in the United States. They insisted on hanging a confederate flag above their capitol building until a few years ago when someone from another state brought an updated calendar to show them what year it was. Although they were shocked to hear the war was over, they did proclaim the south would "rise again," and this is commonly seen on the back of pickup trucks throughout the state driven by men with an average IQ of 40 and with four of his six children sitting in the bed of the truck playing with empty beer cans on the way back home from church. The only place of any worth in the entire state is Hilton Head Island. The majority of its residents are those from the northeast. That being said, Hilton Head is really beautiful, clean, and most of the residents speak English, with the exception of those who mow your lawn. Everywhere else is fairly unremarkable. If you're into tacky tourist attractions, go no further than Myrtle Beach. It's like an overweight, glue-sniffing southern counterpart to Las Vegas. Best avoided. In conclusion, if you're looking for your lost "rebel" identity and enjoy bathing in mediocrity, go no further than South Carolina. If you want uptight bitches from Charleston to tell you how southern "culture" is all about being classy and hospitable, ask her why that street down the road has twelve black families with the same last name as her.
Clueless A: "Man, South Carolina is so great. Palmetto State rules! Go Cocks!"
Clueless B: "Fuck yeah bro, I can't wait until I graduate from Clemson and go into construction!"
Voice of Reason: "You're both fucking nitwits, you have either Georgia, North Carolina or Florida to go to with infinite more possibilities but you choose to say in this infested backwater slum."
Clueless A and B: "Clemson rules! The south will rise again! Hey, where's my John Deere hat?"
The Secession State. The Palmetto State. Home of the Revolution.
South Carolina is the secession state.
The greatest state ever! Beautiful beaches! Southern Charm! Pearls, sweet tea, grits, bow ties, palmetto trees, shagging! Most importantly, charming manners.
South Carolina is a delightful place!
Although the uplands area is a bit "backwoods", it is a wonderful state full of friendly people and incredible views (after all, it is the state of "smiling faces, beautiful places". In how many other places are you no more than three hours from beach or mountains from ANYWHERE in the state...?
Here's a news flash for everyone: REDNECKS, unfortunately, inhabit all 50 states from California to Maine
The state we live in. Sometimes we hate it, sometimes we love it. Statistically, it sucks.
Where we live (in the upstate), yes, it is populated by hicks who tote guns, stack junk cars by the hundreds in their front yards, and give 10% of their income to their local baptist church to get the preacher a new gas-guzzling SUV.
The lowcountry, however, is quite charming, from what we've seen.
A small, southern state in what can be considered the Old South. One of the first 13 colonies, South Carolina had an important part in both the American Revolution and the American Civil War. South Carolina plays a less important part in the overall of the United States in contemporary history, but its major cities: Columbia, Charleston, and Myrtle Beach, are still somewhat vivid. The Upstate is a hilly region, but it becomes more regular until it hits the sea. The "Lowcountry", as the long strip of oceanside land is called, is very flat and has a subtropical climate. Many of South Carolina's cities and towns are very pleasant, but some areas still pertain to the sterotypes branded to its people.
I will visit South Carolina one day, but not very soon.
South Carolina, you may think it's entirely full of rednecks and well....people in touch with their more primative roots. And you'd be mostly right. However, most of the Lowcountry is nothing like this. Charleston, Beaufort, and Hilton Head are super nice places with a calm laid back atmosphere, nice beaches, and nice people.
Jennie and Molly went downtown to King Street to eat lunch, get a drink at Starbucks, and pick up a new Lacoste Shirt
