Local Information



Summerville is Charleston's Best-Kept Secret

Nestled amid forests of moss-draped oaks and towering pines, secluded from the hustle and bustle yet just 25 miles from Charleston, is the small town of Summerville. This community is the quintessential Lowcountry town: Historic brick storefronts line Main Street, longtime local businesses pack the streets within city limits, and beautiful homes with spacious front porches fill its charming neighborhoods.

Now home to nearly 50,000 people, Summerville began as a humble settlement surrounded by thick groves of ancient trees, a summer retreat for the Charleston wealthy. Today, Summerville is growing and expanding with new residents and beautiful new homes and communities. Come explore Summerville… you just might find your perfect slice of lowcountry living.
