Heyoooo

I'm (hopefully) doing a year abroad next year and I'm wondering about the best place to go. (In terms of people, things to do, social life, etc etc). I'm pretty set on going somewhere in the south. Yes I am aware of rednecks/stupid southern people but the girl from Oklahoma that was in my halls last year was great and the 3 or so other southern people I have met have been great too. I know that 4 people don't represent half a country but I don't care too much about rednecks.

I'm thinking South Carolina, purely because of the bands I would get to see, other than that I have no idea.

What's the best southern state? advise me!

Thanks.

EDIT: Shit, less available unis than I though:

Nashville, Tennessee or Atlanta, Gerogia if you actually want to see bands. I don't know who lied to you and told you South Carolina haha. I moved here four years ago and I love Nashville though... Every music scene is blowing up here.

yeah i was going to say i don't think south carolina would be a wise choice if that's your goal. but yeah people in the south are very friendly as a whole. not that people elsewhere aren't, it's just a different sort of outgoing friendliness than elsewhere

Doesn't matter. Wherever you go in the US, the college students will love you. They just love anyone from Europe here. Especially the ladies, if that does anything for you. Because of that, I'm sure you will have an amazing time at any school.

Its true. I prefer Philly, but Nashville is pretty much my home now. Major cities in the south are a lot like major cities in other parts of the country. Its once you get out to the middle of nowhere, regardless of where you are, that you get to see the... "flavor" of the region.

Personally, if I were you I would be more interested in studying in Canada/northern US in which I would recommend Vancouver, Seattle, Chicago, Montreal, Toronto, NYC, Boston etc. I think these places are more interesting culturally but if you wanted the south I would look into Californiaor perhaps even San Antonio Texas or Phoenix AZ for something that would be a complete change of pace from the UK. All of these places have huge music scenes and at least a few notable artists.
