Aiken Visitors Guide

Welcome to Aiken, South Carolina: a place like no other. A true Southern beauty, Aiken is canopied in majestic live oaks, decorated with beautifully landscaped gardens and dotted with massive estate homes harking back to the 1800s when Aiken was a winter colony retreat for the wealthy.

Aiken exudes pure Southern charm. Once you visit, however, you will find that Aiken is much more than just a pretty place. Deemed as an All American City, Aiken is also urban, sporty, and outdoorsy. Aiken has it all.

Take a peek at what those of us who live here enjoy throughout the year. We invite you to come be our guest and see for yourself why Aiken is a place like no other.
