Aiken, SC, is unique in that it's a fairly cosmopolitan town yet lacks a large airport, harbor, or direct access to an interstate highway. Isolation such as that can be the death knell of a small town yet Aiken has survived and thrived. It's routinely visited by Southerners, Californians, and New Yorkers charmed by its lively downtown, the occasional sand covered street, and its horse-based economy.
