What is it that draws people to South Carolina? Is it the marshes in the Low Country? The Sassafras Mountain in Pickens? What about the beaches, lakes, islands and rivers? Of course these beautiful ecosystems and landmarks are reasons people come to the great Palmetto State, but the towns existing within and around them are the real showstoppers for our residents and visitors alike. South Carolina ETV has dedicated an entire digital series called “Our Town” to the small towns of South Carolina and people inside of them.
Currently sitting in the No. 1 spot for most viewed in the “Our Town” digital series is Moncks Corner with nearly 4,000 views on YouTube! This quaint town is nested only an hour away from Charleston, South Carolina and fifteen minutes from Lake Moultrie. Full of great history and wildlife, Moncks Corner has swamps, the Cooper River, and a National Forest. The residents describe their town as a friendly, great community where everybody knows everybody!

Similar to the South Carolina Gamecocks and Clemson Tigers having pride for their football team, South Carolina has pride for its residents. This pride continues flowing through the good seasons and bad, forever supporting and lifting up South Carolinians. In response to this, SCETV created a digital series titled “Original SC” that features stories of everyday South Carolinians living, working and experiencing all that the Palmetto State has to offer. From school principals to cane makers, South Carolina is proud to have these people call this great state home.
With almost 169,000 views on YouTube, the story of School Bus Driver Francine Jackson has the most views out of the “Original SC” digital series. Francine has a love that cannot be contained to her bus, No. 6. It flows out of her and reaches anyone she comes into contact with. She loves listening to the children on bus No. 6, hearing about their day at school and lives beyond it. She takes pride in taking care of the children on her route because they make her so happy, and we know that she makes them happy as well. Watch the “Original SC” series!
There is no better feeling than supporting local small businesses in your community. Whether it be a pharmacy or restaurant, small business owners appreciate the business you bring. In an effort to highlight some unique small businesses, SCETV has launched a digital series called “Made Here” to bring them to your fingertips. These range from handmade baskets to candles to manly natural soap!
“Made Here” has covered lots of different small businesses in South Carolina, but one has a title that will make you do a double take: Goat Yoga. This episode of “Made Here” has almost 2,000 views on YouTube and is about Critter Creek Farm in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Home to Fainting and Nigerian Dwarf goats, Critter Creek Farm opened its doors to goat yoga four years ago. This was an effort to ensure that the baby goats from Critter Creek were socialized, but eventually doubled as a positive environment for people to dip their toe into the world of yoga.

Some of the best memories a family can make start in the kitchen. For some families, the kitchen is open to more than just their immediate family. Some have turned their kitchen into their full time business in hopes to make people happy with their family friendly environments and delicious foods.
