The heart of the Old South, South Carolina is amazingly diverse for a state that ranks 40th in size in the US. The Blue Ridge Mountains delineate South Carolina’s northwest boundaries with North Carolina and Georgia. The Piedmont region is rolling hills, the aptly named Sand hills region is in the central part of the state, and the Outer and Inner Coastal Plains sweep to the Atlantic Ocean. South Carolina’s state capital, Columbia, is its largest city, with coastal Charleston coming in second. South Carolina’s diversity extends to the state’s climate. Summers are uniformly hot, but its coastal areas have mild winters, while the inland and upland areas of South Carolina see cooler winters with freezing rain and occasional snow. Freezing rain can make conditions hazardous for travel in the winter; bridges in the state are often marked “bridges freeze before roadways” for this reason. Tropical storms and spring rains are also common, although the state sees less hurricane and cyclone conditions than nearby North Carolina.
