close to everything. far from ordinary

You could say that Summers Corner gives you the best of both worlds. It’s a small-town community where you’re encouraged to live life at a slower pace. But it’s also just 24 miles from Charleston’s vibrant city center, where you can experience art, culture, world-class dining and more if the mood strikes you. And when you need to get away for work or play (it does happen occasionally), the Charleston International Airport is just 18 miles from home.

there’s no place like summerville

One of the best parts of living in Summers Corner is being part of Summerville. From the historic (and delicious) Main Street district to colorful, seasonal celebrations. From abundant azaleas and wisteria to the way people greet you on the street. The charms of Summerville slowly work their magic. Take a minute to watch. You'll see.

A Longtime Resort

CNN Money recently named Summerville among its Top 25 Places to Retire. But this “Flower Town in the Pines” was first inhabited in the 1700s by Charlestonians and other residents of the Lowcountry, who came here for a cool, shady retreat from the summer heat. Proof that it’s always been a pretty spectacular place to live.

Welcome to Main Street

Whether your pleasure is fresh-roasted coffee, craft beer or a world-class hot dog, Summerville’s Main Street district has it all (including Perfectly Frank’s hot dog joint, which was featured on Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives”). For those more interested in the arts (and crafts), there’s also an art gallery and quilt shop.

Steeped in History

There are certain things that make Summerville…well, Summerville. Like Middleton Place—home to the oldest landscaped gardens in the U.S., and one of 700 registered historic landmarks in town. Or the fact that it’s the birthplace of Sweet Tea (with a long lists of events and tours to prove it.)
