Think Oconee was originally launched in 2016 as a buy local campaign that challenged Oconee citizens to consciously focus their spending habits toward local business. Since then, Think Oconee has grown into a way of life that not only challenges residents to think, buy, and give locally, but also challenges those living beyond our borders to Think Oconee when they travel. A prime destination spot, Oconee County, has proven itself to be the destination for business and lifelong investment decisions. Located in the northwestern corner of South Carolina, and less than three hours from Atlanta, Charlotte, Asheville, and Greenville; Oconee County truly is at the center of it all. When you think… home, growth, adventure, and possibilities, Think Oconee!
