Up Your Passions

Where Culture Meets Charm

With big city amenities and a strong small town spirit, when it comes to food, adventure and culture, there’s no place quite like Upstate South Carolina. We’ve got all the perks of a major metro area and access to the great outdoors, while maintaining a competitive cost of living.

Outdoor adventurers will revel in our natural scenic wonders, including state parks nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, lakes and hundreds of sparkling waterfalls. Foodies will find everything from locally-driven cuisine from acclaimed chefs to classic Meat ‘n’ Three and southern barbecue joints. Culture lovers will enjoy endless options for everything from ballet and theatre to live comedy and burgeoning arts districts. And that’s not all—we have sports, top-ranked festivals and tons of ways to give back and get involved in the community. Discover more below.
