Your inside track on finding what feeds your lifestyle soul begins here. Check out our light-hearted look at southern traditions, then get down to business.

In addition to the mountains-to-sea options all newcomers (and oldtimers) mention, you’ve got golf. Discover our ratings, money-saving tips, best courses and bucket list favorites. Or what about our noble steeds? The equestrian culture has a long, distinguished tradition – and the world has taken notice. Choose horse-friendly communities where you can ride whenever the impulse strikes, or simply enjoy being around these beauties.

And then there’s pedestrian power – walkable communities, trails, and the great Carolina outdoors. Marry location and amenities by choosing a country club lifestyle, resort living, or choosing to live riverside or lakeside. We’ve got adrenalin-pumping sports, too.

Choose the wide-open spaces, farmlands and estates where you can garden year round. Hint: You will be amazed at what grows here. Or choose a pied-à-terre in the urban forest, where gastropubs and French bistros are near tonight’s theater tickets, or college game.

Have a wander, then stop by our real estate hub, with features on condominium living, buying land, and much more.
