The Downtown Summerville historic district has unique stores, boutiques, antique shops and restaurants.
Summerville's youth attend some of the best state schools in the Dorchester II School District. Nearby colleges and universities include The Citadel, College of Charleston, Charleston Southern University and the Medical University of South Carolina.
The Gahagan Plantation Community Park is a fine facility with such amenities as six lighted baseball diamonds, a playground and sports fields. The picnic areas at Jessen Boat Landing overlook the Ashley River and the Azalea Hut is a community building used for classes, activities, meetings and programs. Hutchinson Square is a beautifully landscaped town square and Newington Plantation Circle provides two acres of open space. There are three championship golf courses in Summerville: Legend Oaks Golf Club, Miler Country Club and Pine Forest Country Club.
