Aiken, SC: “The South’s Best”
Aiken, South Carolina was recently recognized by Southern Living Magazine as the “South’s Best Small Town” for 2018. Aiken also took home three other awards, including “South’s Friendliest Town,” second for “South’s Best Food Town,” and second for “South’s Best Hotel” awarded to The Willcox, a member of the Southern Living Hotel Collection.
The article in Southern Living Magazine attributed the awards to Aiken’s natural beauty, mild climate that attracts people from across the nation, strong connections to the outdoors through attractions like the 2,100 acre urban forest Hitchcock Woods, and the cultural hub of the city, downtown Aiken. While these attributes alone would make Aiken deserving of these awards, the Aiken area is also home to six major medical providers, a college town setting that earned it Ideal-Living Magazine’s “Best College Town” in 2017, and a surprisingly low cost of living!
