The Charlotte Observer has selected Summerville as one of the cool S.C. towns to visit.
Summerville was one of five towns selected. The list included Aiken and Camden.
Summerville was included because:
This is charming town northwest of Charleston is known for its cool collection of outdoor art – 21 permanent pieces scattered around town. A great time to visit is during the annual Sculpture in the South Show & Sale (www.sculptureinthesouth.com), May 19-20 this year. Most any time of year, downtown’s Azalea Park is a sight to behold. (Be sure and pet Toby, the park’s beloved dog sculpture.) With more than 700 homes and buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, Summerville is well-known for its historic character.
