Located in the Southeastern United States, South Carolina is bordered by North Carolina, Georgia and the Atlantic Ocean. Nicknamed “the Palmetto State,” South Carolina was the first state to ratify the Articles of Confederation, the eighth state to ratify the U.S. Constitution and the eighth state to be admitted to the Union. While Columbia is South Carolina’s capital and largest city, the city of Greenville is the state’s largest metropolitan area.
