Big City Amenities. Small Town Feel.
In addition to being an ideal location for growing a business, Sumter County is a great place to raise a family. With a population of about 106,000 in the Sumter County Metropolitan Statistical Area, Sumter County has the population to support most big city amenities like museums, theatres and music venues. But at the same time we're small enough to retain the feel of Small Town, USA.
Sumter County is home to an arts and cultural scene that has seen a lot of growth in recent years. For instance, Sumter's Little Theatre recently completed a million-dollar expansion, while the City of Sumter began hosting live comedy shows at the Historic Opera House.
Sumter County is also home to some world-class nature-based amenities, like Manchester State Forest, Poinsett State Park and Woods Bay State Natural Area. These public places feature equestrian activities, hiking, boating, kayaking and other healthy, family friendly activities.
