The mild climate and the scenic beauty of Lake Hartwell and the Blue Ridge Mountains around Anderson County, South Carolina make this area second to none for a great and wonderful place to live. Located in the beautiful northwestern part of South Carolina, also known as the Upstate, we are located half way between Charlotte, North Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia on Interstate I-85. Our central location provides quick and easy access to the Great Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, and just a mornings drive to the South Carolina beaches. We are fortunate to enjoy an average of 265 days of sunshine a year, an average of 47 inches of annual rainfall and a average temperature of 62F. Our county has a population of 172,988 and covers 777 square miles.
In addition to our scenic beauty, Anderson has many additional amenities to offer with its thriving industry, exceptional health care, and year round entertainment opportunities, art, culture, and education. The Anderson and Tri-County areas combined have six colleges, including Clemson University and Anderson University, where the Anderson Symphony performs. With everything the mountains and Lake Hartwell have to offer, this is an outdoor lovers paradise for fishing, boating, swimming, camping, hiking, hunting, and viewing or rafting the Whitewater Falls. Lake Hartwell is a 56,000 acre lake developed by the Army Corps of Engineers, and has a shore line of nearly 1000 miles which allows our area to have lots of Lake Hartwell homes for sale. Other public recreational activities include year-round golf, tennis, swimming centers, bowling centers, movie theaters, and a new YMCA with its recreational programs for all ages. We have over 260 churches representing nearly all established faiths and senior centers with their own social programs.
I have found Anderson County to be a progressive community filled with friendly people who welcome newcomers, beautiful housing subdivisions for Anderson SC Real Estate, Lake Hartwell Waterfront home sales, and Clemson Real Estate, and terrific restaurants and shopping. Anderson has all of this to offer and more, all at one of the lowest costs of living in the U.S. I hope you will enjoy it here in Anderson County as much as I do.
