There is no question: South Carolina is a great place to spend in retirement. It's not only affordable overall, but also it has mild weather in winter and is downright gorgeous.

"Spend a day or two in the Palmetto State, and you may quickly understand the state slogan — 'smiling faces and beautiful places.' The state’s 'Lowcountry' region, which extends 150 miles along the state’s coast, is renowned for its miles of sugary white-sand beaches, historic architecture and abundant golf courses," Forbes reported about South Carolina in an article about America's best places to retire in 2015.

Here are four facts about retirement in South Carolina.

1. It's a retirement hub.

South Carolina is one of the most popular places to retire in America, so don't expect to be alone if you choose to spend your golden years here.

"Hilton Head is a retirement community located on an island of the same name at the extreme southern edge of South Carolina. This area ... is known for its beautiful beaches and fabulous golf courses. Of its almost 34,000 population, the majority are active adults 55+ who choose this island and the surrounding area as their ideal retirement community. The Island swells to almost 300,000 people during the busy summer tourist season," TopRetirements.com said.

2. It gets hot and humid.
Winters in South Carolina are mild, but summers get hot and humid in the state's sub-tropical climate. Living by the ocean, however, is a bit cooler as are the mountains in the western parts of the Palmetto State.

3. Historic cities
Charleston is the most famous city in South Carolina, and the place where the Civil War began. But it is not the only historically preserved city in the Palmetto State, smaller towns like Bluffton and Beaufort also shine.

4. Four different regions
The most popular part of South Carolina is the “Lowcountry,” which is the region near the state's coastline. But South Carolina has three other regions: Sandhills, Piedmont, and Upstate.
