Aiken Featured in Southern Living as “The South’s Best Small Town 2018

Southern Living magazine recently recognized Aiken, SC, as “The South’s Best Small Town 2018”. Describing Aiken as “an authentic South Carolina equestrian community rich in historic charm and tradition”, the article (also featured in print in April 2018) highlights the deep equestrian roots in Aiken, including events such the Aiken Horse Show, now in its 102nd year.

However, the magazine recognizes Aiken for more than horses, offering suggestions for shopping, dining and area accomodations for both horse lovers and those who simply appreciate Aiken’s classic southern charm. Local area businesses highlighted include:

Restaurants:
Malia’s
Trio Bar & Kitchen
The Red Pepper
Aiken Brewing Company

Shopping:
Equine Divine
Epona
Aiken Center for the Arts
Fox & Lady
Aiken Dry Goods
Threads
Lionel Smith, Ltd.

Hotel accomodations:

The Willcox

Talk to almost any Aiken resident, and he or she is likely to tell you why they love calling this area home. With its vibrant history and CSRA location, Aiken is becoming an increasingly popular residential area for young professionals, families and anyone in-between. Still, it’s always nice to hear it from someone else!
