The Historic Town In South Carolina That Comes Alive During The Winter Season
Aiken, a historic town in South Carolina established in 1835 as a railroad town, became a popular winter colony after the Civil War for the nation’s wealthy elite, especially those passionate about horse sports. Even as early as 1854, the Aiken Hotel was receiving requests for winter reservations numbering over half the town’s total population at the time. And the town of Aiken still comes alive during the winter season today!

South Carolina has been home for AnneMarie since 2001. Her favorite part of the state is Lake Jocassee. An App State alumna, it's always the mountains; the lake bonus makes it heavenly. When not writing about the state, she may be spending time with family, relaxing by the pool, or out somewhere enjoying nature.
