Retiring This Summer? Come to Clemson!
Southern Hospitality, a Lively Collegiate Atmosphere and a Reasonable Cost of Living Bring Retirees to Stimulating Clemson, South Carolina
Tucked away in the rural northwestern section of South Carolina known as the Upcountry, Clemson (population 16,000) is surrounded by wooded countryside brimming with sparkling lakes and rolling hills. A youthful population, a boisterous football culture and an active cultural community are reasons that retirees come to this leafy town, a place that is completely defined by Clemson University (population 23,000). Not everyone wants to retire in such an energetic spot, but Clemson has a lot to offer, including a reasonable cost of living, lake recreation, a very low crime rate and a good senior support system. The town has grown by 40% within the last decade.
