Lugoff is a safe and humble area of SC. Here in Lugoff, we have amazing schools, plenty of job opportunities, access to Columbia which is 15 minutes away, great first responders, and both beaches and mountains depending on the way in which you travel. I've lived her my entire life and I have seen this area grow rapidly. Soon enough, we may be as populated as Columbia. This area is absolutely beautiful; we have a state park in Columbia and here in Lugoff, we have Lake Wateree. Soon all of our elementary schools will be remodeled making educational environments even better!

Lugoff is a quiet, "not much happening" area found right outside of Columbia. Lugoff's diversity is amazing; we have people from so many different backgrounds and cultures living in this small little area of the world that usually tends to not be seen on maps. Our high school is an amazing educational institution. Our teachers are amazing and we have so many opportunities here. If anything, Lugoff needs to have a larger school built for its high schoolers. We need to slow down on the logging and focus more on working towards problems like drug use seen in the area.
Living in Lugoff, SC has been a wonderful experience. I feel happy here, I feel loved here and most importantly I feel safe here. I have lived in Lugoff for about 18 months, but it feels like I have been here my whole life. The people that live here are so friendly that it feels like family. From the small businesses you find, the local churches you attend, to the elementary schools you visit, everyone is always happy and kind. The people here are the type that would give you the shirt off their back, and their last bottom dollar if they knew you needed it. There always seems to be good jobs available, and very nice places to live. The schools are fantastic, and the teachers really care about the students. There are so many reasons to visit, but so many more reasons to actually make the move to Lugoff. If feeling happy, loved and safe is what you are looking for in a place to live then Lugoff is the right match for you.
