How many people have been to SC?

Recommended Posts

This may sound like a dumb question, but I was just curious. How many people on this forum have been to South Carolina? If so, of these cities where?

Myrtle Beach

Charleston

Hilton Head/ Beaufort

Greenville

Columbia

You may choose more than one.

I grew up in Asheville, NC, and have been to all of the above except Hilton Head/Beaufort. I've been to Greenville and Spartanburg more times than I can count. It's bit far so it's a bit of a stretch, but there's definitely some sort of a regional connection between the Asheville and SC Upstate. For one thing, Asheville/Greenville/Spartanburg are considered to be the same TV market, and as such all network TV stations are common. I went to Greenville with my parents once or twice a year for shopping, or business, or fun. And my high school's sports teams regularly competed against a couple of teams from Spartanburg, so I'd go down there maybe 6 times a year for that.

Been to Charleston a number of times too, most recently for spring break back in 2001.

Don't remember much about Columbia or Myrtle Beach, that was a long time ago...

I've been to Columbia when my siter went to USC. I visited Myrtle Beach a couple of times when I was a kid. I could only remember spending a lot of time at the arcade. And I've spent a weekend at Charleston and went on a tour there. It was cool.

Ive been to and through SC on a number of times. The most recent is wheen I drove to SC all the way from Greensboro just to play the power ball. I usually drive to Danville, Virgina because Virginia is only about a 30 minute drive from Greensboro. But I go down to SC when the powerball gets really big. Most of the time Im driving through SC if Im going to Atlanta of Florida. But there are a few cases where I go to visit cities in SC. The last city I visted was Charleston and I really like that city. The people there are so friendly and they wil invite strangers into their homes for meals. I was walking down one of the streets in the historic district and one woman invited me into her home for lunch. :P I just thought it was amazing the find that there are still people like that.

Been to all the listed cities. I'm surprised how many people have missed out on the best place in the state, Greenville's downtown. You all really need to plan on a visit here someday. It will definitely be worth your time. :) Who knows, you might end up staying! :lol:
