HANAHAN — The Lowcountry might be the hardest working region in South Carolina, but that’s partly because so many of us are stuck in stop-and-go traffic for so long each day.
Hanahan was named the “Hardest Working City” in South Carolina recently by zippia.com. Five of the top six cities in South Carolina came from the tri-county area.
Goose Creek came it at No. 2 in this year’s rankings. Charleston (4), Ladson (5) and North Charleston (6) also were all among this year’s top 10 cities in the state.
Zippia sifted through the most recent American Community Survey from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to determine its rankings. The website ranked just shy of 4,000 cities across the country.
