Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, along the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor, Anderson County sits in the state’s northwestern corner–an area commonly referred to as the Upstate. Midway between Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA along Interstate 85, on what was once Cherokee hunting grounds, Anderson County is studded with landmarks from the past. The area has many treasures for those interested in exploring its history. Anderson University calls Anderson County homes and has a student population of over 2,000 students along with Clemson University in Pickens County with over 20,000 students.
Offering a mild climate with four distinct seasons, Anderson County is a thriving economic and cultural community. With Lake Hartwell, Lake Jocasee, Lake Russell, Lake Keowee, and J. Strom Thurmond Lake , the area has approximately 3,000 miles of shoreline and thousands of acres of lakes perfect for year-round recreation. If that isn’t enough, Anderson County is only a short drive from Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand on the Atlantic Ocean while still being in sight of the beautiful and majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Atlanta and Charlotte are just two hours away, putting international cultural events and national sports teams well within reach.
