With a small town feel and great public schools, Summerville is one of the fastest growing suburbs of Charleston. Its quaint downtown section has changed little over the past fifty years, and it offers antique stores, local restaurants like The Mustard Seed, a community theater, and the 12-acre Azalea Park which hosts the annual Flowertown Festival (recently named a Top Twenty Event by the Southeast Tourism Society). Just 5 minutes away from Downtown Summerville, you'll find a range of large scale commercial shopping centers. Perhaps the most popular is Azalea Square which features a Kohl’s, Target, and Ulta - just to name a few options. The Regal Cinemas is also located here along with a Lowes, Walmart, and Cracker Barrel nearby.
Two of the best golf courses in Summerville are at Legend Oaks Plantation and Miler Country Club (both courses are public). The Gahagan Sports Complex hosts leagues and tournaments for kids as well as adults. The new YMCA is also worth checking out, and it offers free child care while you exercise. Although Summerville offers plenty of entertainment options, know that Downtown Charleston is less than a 40 minute drive.
