What are some truly beautiful places in South Carolina?  

Oh, South Carolina: how do we love thee? Let us count the ways. We’re pretty lucky that South Carolina is so scenic; there’s plenty to do and see here, and a lot of it is truly breathtaking and remarkably photogenic. For example, everyone needs to check out the world-famous Angel Oak tree, which grows here and is known to be one of the oldest trees in all of North America. There’s also Caesar’s Head State Park, an incredible place with amazing views, and the Hilton Head Lighthouse is photogenic and fun to visit as well. Our beaches, like Hunting Island, are beyond gorgeous. Some of the old plantations, despite their dark histories, are visually beautiful, too. South Carolina is a lovely state; you’ve just got to know where to look. For additional information about all these we mentioned here, and more of our favorite beautiful places in South Carolina, take a look at this article 

What are the most dangerous places in South Carolina?  

South Carolina is beautiful, but it’s not without its less-safe places. Some of the most dangerous places in South Carolina as of the time of this writing include Columbia, Walterboro, Hartsville, Spartanburg, and Anderson. Even more dangerous than those are Dillon and Lake City, and most dangerous of all is the town of Bishopville. Overall, South Carolina isn’t a scary or bad place to live; it’s a gorgeous state with plenty of things to do and see, but as with anywhere, you’ve just got to make sure to take steps to be safe no matter where you’re located (but particularly if you’re in some of those places). In Bishopville, your chances of being the victim of a violent crime are 1 in 65.
