The state of South Carolina is located in the South of the United States and belongs to the South Atlantic States. South Carolina borders the states of North Carolina to the north and Georgia to the west and south.

South Carolina is located within two United States physiographic regions. A chain of barrier islands, a coastline indented by numerous bays and river mouths, a coastal plain with fertile soils and sandhills covered with pine forests located to the west are all part of the US Atlantic Lowlands. Further west, behind the escarpment known as the “line of fall”, are the provinces of the Appalachian mountain system. Here, the terrain gradually rises, passing first into the rolling Piedmont Plateau, and then, in the far northwest of the state, into the Blue Ridge (“Blue Ridge”) mountain range.
