About Clemson, South Carolina

Near the mountains and located along the shores of Lake Hartwell, Clemson offers an idealistic combination of mountain, lake, and urban lifestyles. Home to Clemson Univerisity, locals bleed purple and orange, and game nights are something to behold as the whole town shows its support.

As a visitor, we welcome you to explore our town and the places and events that make us proud to live here. As we say, our city is in season, every season. There's an adventure to be had around every corner. Spend a morning hiking in our foothills, an afternoon paddling on our lakes, and an evening supporting the Clemson Tigers followed by a night out at downtown's latest restaurants and bars. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, Clemson is here to welcome you.
