South Carolina – Pleasant climate


We've been living in SC since 1986. To me, it's not the best climate (I found places in CA and HI better), but it's better than other states I've lived in (NY, NJ, WV, OH, MO, and MN). The worst season I think is the summer, but it's really nice 3/4 of the year.

We're located way up in the northwest corner, in what people around here call the upstate.

We're in the Blue Ridge foothills. The highest point in the county is 3560 feet above sea level. From here to Charleston is about 200 miles and it's all downhill.

The puzzling thing is where to go for retirement. One standard answer is to go someplace cheap with good weather -- but we're already here --we just came a bit early, DW says.
