If you're considering the state as a final resting place, you have a variety of options, many of which are outlined below.
Your choice of South Carolina cemetery may depend on your loved ones and personal taste. But here are details of some SC cemeteries to get you started.
The beauty of Greenville, named the third best small city in the United States by Conde Nast Traveler magazine in 2017, can be seen in Graceland Cemetery West, which features a natural two-acre artesian well pond. Not to be outdone, Graceland Cemetery East, in Simpsonville, has been described as the prettiest cemetery in upstate South Carolina. Simpsonville is southeast of Greenville and is considered part of the "Golden Strip," a group of thriving cities in South Carolina.
