There is plenty of information about South Carolina available online, which can very be useful for visitors to the area.

            A good place to begin doing some research is on the Official Tourism Site of South Carolina .  This is a typical US State tourism page and provides tons of useful information for potential tourists.  One particular feature that can be quite helpful in getting to know the state better is the State Maps page.  Here one will find maps of tourist regions, airports, roadways, state parks, cities, counties and more.  Brief descriptions are provided for most major areas.  There is also an events calendar available for major happenings around the state. 

            The South Carolina Government website is a good place to look for information more specific to state matters such as business, legislature and education. The travel and recreation link again has useful tools for planning a trip.

            A great way to get to know an unfamiliar area better is to study its geography.  Check out the Map of South Carolina to get started.

            For weather information on any major city or town in the state, visit the Weather Channel website.
