Relocating to South Carolina? We’re Nexton, a new community in the classic Lowcountry town of Summerville, just northwest of Charleston. It’s our pleasure to welcome you and give you a few insights into what makes this place so special. And while you’re out discovering the best of the region, we warmly invite you to drop by and experience the new homes and fresh Lowcountry spirit of Nexton.
When you're in Nexton, you're close. Downtown Charleston is less than 26 miles away. Charleston International Airport, 18 miles. Historic downtown Summerville, a scant 5 miles. Nexton is just a good place to be. Especially if you regularly need to be somewhere else. As long as you’re relocating to the South Carolina Lowcountry, you may as well be in the heart of it.
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.
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.
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?
In Charleston, it all comes together. Natural beauty. Beaches. Culture. Affordable homes. Nice weather and even nicer people. It’s a near-perfect place where you can make retirement as relaxing — or exciting — as you want it to be.
