I'll pass. We all know Charleston is the only place in South Carolina worthy of note right? Lol.

The only things in the Upstate that are note-worthy is the sheer amount of rednecks and churches. Welcome to South Carolina: Toothless faces and many dumping places with the exception of Charleston which of course is the holy grail of this state.

"The whole lowcountry is a gem"? LOL. I agree with Gville, downtown is nice. Other than that, well, less than impressive. N. Charleston? Ladson? Summerville? Goose Creek? Monks Corner? ....absolutely nothing special about any of these places.

Columbia has great history, a major comprehensive search university, Lake Murray, close to $500m in development within The Vista alone, the state's financial capital, Pharmaceuticals etc....

Greenville has a great Main St, BMW, Lake Keowee, Hwy 11, a major comprehensive university etc...

Ft Mill/Rock Hill is part of the largest, wealthiest and fastest growing metro in SC. It has great parks, greenways, lakes, rivers, a true international (top 10) airport, pro sports, comprehensive research universities, a national financial capital etc....

Id like to throw in while all this self hatred is going on that no part of SC is really all that great. Greenville has its 'downtown', Columbia has the universities, and Charleston has the history and parties. Big whop. The whole state doesnt even equal one major city where you could find all this attributes in one plus more.

I can think of quite a few things you could find in Atlanta that none of us want here in our cities in SC. You can have your major city and all of the other things that come with it.

In Charleston there is Charleston Southern University, The college of Charleston and the Citadel, also our Downtown is better than Greenvilles! Sure our colleges aren't so large as Columbia's but we do have them

That's debatable. I like Greenville's downtown because it isn't as touristy. Visit one day.

It wouldn't be touristy if people didn't prefer it more...

Restaurant chains exist because people generally like them...
