South Carolina has emerged as a world-class choice for business. And with its infrastructure, its deep port, and its people-attracting culture, the Charleston region has become the grand centerpiece of S.C.'s burgeoning economy.
What kinds of businesses are coming to the Lowcountry? All kinds. Big manufacturing, like Volvo, Mercedes Benz and Boeing. High tech firms such as Google. Everything from bio-med to telecom to renewable energy. It's all here. And it's thriving.
In 1670, it was called Charles Town, named after King Charles II of England. Since then this city has seen raids by pirates, key actions in the Revolutionary War, and the opening shots of the Civil War. Few American cities have roots as deep as this.
What's your pleasure? Waves crashing onto a white sandy beach? A world-class round of golf? A public garden filled with azaleas and crepe myrtle? A lake filled with largemouth bass? Or simply a glass of sweet tea on your very own front porch?
The influx of people from all over the world has turned Charleston into foodie heaven. The sheer variety and creativity of Charleston's restaurants is staggering. And yet you can still belly up to a bowl full of
shrimp 'n grits or she-crab soup.
