What to Know Before Moving to South Carolina

Ah, the Palmetto State. The beaches, the hill country, the climate… a popular vacation destination. But what about living here? Oh course at Hilton Head Lakes, we are quite partial to the area so allow us to share some insights.

South Carolina is popular indeed, increasingly so studies indicate that the population increased 5.9% between 2010 and 2015 alone. And why not? The weather here is friendlier than most parts of the country. Mild winters, breezes off the water in the summer easing the warmth of the day. What could be better than sitting on your porch or patio, a cool drink in hand on a warm evening in April?

Living at Hilton Head Lakes offers many amenities in our community. The owners’ community center boasts a fitness center, pickle ball courts, a pool with lap lanes and a beach entry, there is a grilling area, and even a gathering space with a screened porch to enjoy the evening. And then there is the golf course clubhouse that is open to the public featuring the South Wedge Restaurant.

The local area is rich in attractions, just in case you want to explore. Within 30 minutes or less you can visit the world class resort of Hilton Head Island, take a walking tour through Old Town Bluffton, see historic Beaufort, shop farmers’ markets in Hardeeville, or enjoy Savannah’s rich history and famous River Street.

What do you need to know besides the climate, southern hospitality, the food, the beauty of nature, and attractions? The cost of living will most likely be as good as or better than what you’re accustomed to with housing comparable to the national average, the economy is experiencing robust growth, and state tax rates are comparable to the national average as well. Life is certainly good in the lowcountry.

So if you are contemplating moving for retirement or acquiring a vacation home but haven’t decided on a location? Consider Hilton Head Lakes. There’s so much to explore and enjoy here.
