Irmo was recognized by Money Magazine in 2007 as the 12th "Most Affordable Place to Live in the Country." Located off the shore of Lake Murray and only ten miles from Columbia, the Irmo was a sleepy little town of 500 people in the early 1970s. Today with more than 12,000 residents Irmo is one of the country's most sought after places to live. The largest earthen dam in the world (at that time) was built across the Saluda River, forming Lake Murray. The dam, along with the construction of I-26 adjacent to Irmo in the late 1950s, made possible the continuing rapid growth of the greater Irmo area.

Irmo is home to the famous Okra Strut; from their website, “The 45th Annual Irmo Okra Strut is South Carolina’s favorite way to celebrate. Come join in on the best summer festival this side of the Mason-Dixon line.” You will see live bands on both Friday and Saturday nights and all the food you can eat. Saturday, you can enjoy amusement rides, bounce houses, games, shopping, a parade and an Okra eating contest

And when you are ready to shop, it’s a quick trip to Harbison Boulevard with literally hundreds of shops, restaurants and theaters, all surrounding Columbiana Mall.
