Summerville, SC is twenty five miles northwest of beautiful historic Charleston and has a long and impressive history of its own in the Lowcountry. It was once known for the summer homes that coastal planters built here. Visitors from all over the country came here for their lung health as its dry, sandy soil and pine scented, turpentine-infused air were beneficial. Today, tourists come to see the antique stores and art galleries, dine in the restaurants and enjoy this birthplace of Southern sweet tea. Summerville Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places and the entire town is dedicated to being supportive of family life and community living. Residents love the many activities sponsored by the city in Azalea Park each year and the laid-back lifestyle the community enjoys.
