Charleston has done it again. After officially eclipsing Columbia as South Carolina’s largest city back in 2017, the Holy City will get to hold onto those bragging rights.

The population in the city of Charleston has now surpassed 150,000, according to 2020 estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. 

But a closer look at the numbers show Charleston isn’t the only place in the Lowcountry on the move in the Palmetto State, when it comes to size and growth rate.

And Charleston residents don’t have to look far to find those growing areas. Five of South Carolina’s ten largest cities and towns can be found in the Charleston metro area.
