South Carolina:

The Palmetto State was one of the original Thirteen Colonies and a major player in the American Revolution. It was the eighth state to enter the Union on May 23, 1788.

South Carolina's early agriculture economy was dependent on slave labor. The first state to secede from the Union in 1861, South Carolina was also where the first shots of the American Civil War were fired.

The state is comprised of three geographic regions. Its Lowcountry (the Atlantic Coastal Plain) includes the Sea Islands, salt marshes, estuaries, bays, and the Sandhills. Up Country begins with the Piedmont. Rivers here helped encourage the growth of Columbia, the capital city. The Blue Ridge Mountains contain Caesar's Head State Park and Sassafras Mountain, the state's highest point.

South Carolina continues to be an agricultural powerhouse. Peaches, pecans, broilers, turkeys, and cattle are leading products. Shrimp, clams, crabs, oysters, and snapper contribute to the economy.

Thanks to the state's tourism business, service industries have become important. Myrtle Beach is one of the nation's primary resort destinations and hosts more than 100 golf courses.

Musicians James Brown, Chubby Checker, and Dizzy Gillespie are native South Carolinians.

Designed for Aging

Many new retirement developments are being "designed for aging." What does this mean? While baby boomers have every intention of staying active during their retirement years, living with design elements that make one's living space more accommodating is also a good idea. In homes designed for aging, the home has just one story. The path from the master bedroom to the bathroom is short, well-defined and well-lit. Door handles are levers instead of knobs. All thresholds are flush. Toilets are a few inches higher. Bathroom floors are made from a no-slip material. In a well-designed home, these are just a few of the features specifically incorporated for aging bodies.
