Who hasn’t heard James Taylor’s words;
“In my mind I’m gone to Carolina

Can’t you just feel the moonshine?
Ain’t it just like a friend of mine
To hit me from behind?
Yes, I’m gone to Carolina in my mind”

8. Love South Carolina BBQ
There are many different types of South Carolina Barbecue, but they all start with pork!
In South Carolina, that meat is invariably pork — sometimes pulled from a whole hog, sometimes chopped from a slow-smoked shoulder or ham, but always deriving from somewhere on the pig. In fact, try this experiment. Take a South Carolinian to a barbecue buffet (there is not shortage of such operations in the Palmetto State) and ask him or her, “go get me some barbecue.” What you’re going to get back is guaranteed. The steam table may be loaded down with ribs, chicken quarters, and maybe even sliced brisket, but unless they just recently moved to the state from Ohio, your dining companion is certain to bring you back a plate piled high with pork.
9. Love South Carolina Porches
Southern houses and porches – the perfect pair!
Our lovely weather is conducive to long evenings on the porch. Unless you live in one of our cities in a small apartment, most South Carolina houses feature a front (or rear) porch as a must-have outdoor room!
10. Love South Carolina Nature
