I don't care what their origin is. They are breathtaking.

I agree! I lived near Va. Most of my life and saw little of it beyond Mt. Vernon, but years later drove through it and was stunned by the beauty.

Kentucky!
The Appalachians, the lush green fields of bluegrass with horses running free, it all has a special place in my heart~

Well I will give you this, the water looks like nice for swimming and clear, unlike the brown ocean water that fronts the beach on St. Simons Island.

Clemson looks beautiful, but more like a cold northern climate and not subtropical. Loads of deciduous trees about it seems.

the western third of SC, known as the Upstate, with Greenville and Clemson is primarily deciduous trees. Clemson does have a good number of pine trees but not the species that you find in eastern Carolinas or Florida. i call them mountain pines. any area near the blue ridge mountains is primary decidious.

clemson has some massive oak trees, including the largest burr oak in the state right on campus.
