It’s Christmas in the Carolinas for These Small Towns

While some may be dreaming of a white Christmas, many others are perfectly happy enjoying South Carolina’s delightfully mild weather at no expense of Christmas cheer. In other words, make snow mistake, people who live in these charming little areas still celebrate Christmas like pros. So if you or your client is looking for a great excuse to get out of the house, here’s where you need to go to cash in on South Carolina’s Christmas spirit.

Top South Carolina Towns for Christmas Cheer

Carolina Lights, Columbia

Drive-through Christmas lights displays are a unique and fun way to take in a bunch of holiday magic all at once. Sure enough, there’s one right here in Columbia. Held at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds, Carolina Lights offers motorists the chance to experience over a mile of generously lit Christmas displays. Of course, with proper attire, Carolina weather might also allow you to take it in via a convertible; now that’s how you sleigh.

Of course, that’s just one of the many reasons why Columbia is so great. The other? The cost of real estate. Just look at this stately 3 bed, 3 bath house for only $229k. It even has a gas stove, which will please the home chefs out there.

Lights on Taggert, Goose Creek

One of the best aspects of homeownership is that you’re free to go all out with the decorations. That’s exactly what’s happening with the residence at 311 Taggert Circle in Goose Creek. Just a 34-minute drive northwest from Charleston, “Lights on Taggart” is a spectacular residential display that helps support the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital.

Want to snag your own slice of Goose Creek? How about this cool, different 3 bed, 2 bath property listed for $258k?

The Great Christmas Light Show, North Myrtle Beach

As if North Myrtle couldn’t get any better, here comes “The Great Christmas Light Show”. Yet another drive-through Christmas light display, this show is 1.5 miles long and features over two million lights. The spectacle also features over 500 hundred displays with some reaching heights of 55 feet. Sound like a good time? We agree, so gas up the car and head down to the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex for a Christmas experience that’s truly lit.

Should you or a client fall in love with North Myrtle Beach, you might want to consider this 10 bed, 6 bath oceanfront property listed for $999k. The best part about this property is that it can be used as a duplex or as a complete unit.

Harbour Town Lights, Hilton Head Island

If you’re looking to slow down and savor the holidays, then perhaps the Harbour Town Lights is your perfect destination. Each year, businesses around the harbor decorate their storefronts, and the town places a large tree as its centerpiece. Visitors can meander amidst the lights while taking in the sights, sounds, and smell of the ocean. As far as we’re concerned, the Harbour Town Lights is Christmas on the coast perfected.

After visiting Hilton Head, it’s easy to see why it’s some of the most desirable real estate in the country. With that said, prices are high — just look at this 3 bed, 3 bath condo listed for $1.1 million.
