Celebrities Living in South Carolina

The Low Country is not just attractive to those already living down South. Many popular celebrities have chosen to settle down and enjoy South Carolina’s salubrient climate, pristine beaches, great coastal seafood, and other notable charms. 

The next time you’re strolling through Charleston, Beaufort, Mt. Pleasant, Kiawah, or South Carolina’s other favorite islands, watch closely. You may recognize your favorite TV or movie personality.
