South Carolina was created as part of a region called the Province of Carolina. South Carolina has grown to a population of over four and one half million people, it's capital is Columbia.
South Carolina has a beautiful Atlantic Ocean coast and aside from Myrtle Beach has the resort region of Hilton Head, which is just north of Savannah and Tybee Island, often called the Redneck Riviera.
Despite Myrtle Beach, which is a wide stretch of coarse sand and crashing ocean surf, most of South Carolina is marked by a marshy ocean coast with barrier islands and many sand dune regions. Hurricaine Hugo tore down trees around Charleston, SC in 1989.
