By    |   Wednesday, 06 Apr 2016 07:06 PM

From golf to beaches, South Carolina is a popular state to spend your well-earned retirement years. It also offers mild weather, historic cities, and small towns known for their southern hospitality and culture. Additionally taxes are low and the cost of living remains affordable.

Here are four top spots for retirement in South Carolina.

1. Hilton Head

If you can afford to retire on the island of Hilton Head, it's an enviable spot. Not only does it offer exclusive gated communities here that keep active adults feeling safe, but it also is known for being eco-friendly, having fabulous beaches and excellent golfing, according to TopRetirements.com. The cost of living is more than 30 percent higher than the national average though and in summers the island can get very crowded.

2. Charleston

One of the most beautiful cities in the U.S., Charleston exudes classic Southern charm and is another popular spot to retire, especially for those seeking a healthy dose of arts and culture. Crime is also low and the city gets high marks for accessibility to outdoor activities like cycling, according to Forbes.

3. Myrtle Beach

Home to one of the world's longest stretches of sandy beach, known as the "Grand Strand," which runs for nearly 60 miles south of Myrtle Beach, this has long been a favorite retirement beach destination in South Carolina, TopRetirements.com noted. Myrtle Beach is also known for golf, and has more than 120 courses to play on. And it has a lot of dining and shopping options should you wish to go out or entertain.

4. Bluffton

Bluffton is a good alternative to Hilton Head. The small town of just around 13,000 people is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the popular resort island and is also close to the Georgia line. It has a historic old town along the May River that is bustling with art galleries and antique shops.
