Restaurants, movies top SC Google searches for 2021

Google has released its 21st-annual Year in Search — a collection of hundreds of lists with top searches from places around the world, revealing an interesting pattern of topics that appealed to regional audiences in 2021.

Unsurprisingly, many COVID-19 related topics were at the top of the list for trending searches in South Carolina and Charleston including: “COVID vaccine near me” and “COVID testing site near me.”

But as vaccines became more widely available early in 2021, people wanted to return to fun social activities, as reflected in Google’s lists.

In Charleston, other top searches included:

  • Restaurants near me
  • Fast food near me
  • Pizza near me
  • Liquor store near me
  • Seafood near me
  • Breakfast near me
  • Seafood restaurants near me

Basically, the main things on Charlestonians’ minds this year were COVID, restaurants and alcohol. Sounds about right.
