Sumter, SC is a wonderful community. There is a homey, southern charm about this city. Known for some great BBQ, Swan Lake-a beautiful park with a well know art show in May, and Shaw AFB. Built around a lowland swamp, you will find beauty in the many lakes and ponds, which are surrounded by Spanish moss covered trees.

Swan Lake is a very pretty place to visit. There is a fabulous art show in May. There are some "depressed" areas outside of town, but the city looks as if they are trying to revamp those older run down areas.
