Welcome Anne Marie to the Glimpses of our Country Series.
|Pretty Place in the Blue Ridge Mountains|
Do you know which state has beautiful mountains, cool swamps, and gorgeous beaches?
I am from South Carolina, and I want to introduce my state to you. As one of the original 13 colonies, South Carolina has a rich and intriguing history, as well as, beautiful places to visit.
The state has three sections: The Upstate, The Midlands, and the Low Country. In The Upstate you will find places like Greenville, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Stumphouse tunnel. There are many lakes and rivers in the Midland section where the state capital is situated. Throughout the Low Country you can find historical places such as Charleston, Fort Sumter, and the Frances Marion National Forest. (Ever heard of the Swamp Fox?) And of course, the beaches of Charleston all the way north to Myrtle Beach are great places to surf and go deep sea fishing.

The Civil Rights movement brought about a relatively peaceful end to the segregation in the state. More businesses continue to move into the state, such as BMW and Michelin. Tourism is a huge money maker for South Carolina as people come to see pieces of history come to life.
I've lived in two other states, and South Carolina, I think, is the best place to live. The people are friendly no matter where you go, I can drive to church and see the mountains out my window, and the restaurants automatically serve sweet tea when you order it. There is mystery, beauty, and history in the foothills and flat-lands of South Carolina.
Y'all come on down here and have a visit!!
