Ardmore isn't a huge city -- as of the 2010 census it had just over 24,000 residents -- but it has a lot going for it. It's home to a variety of museums, theaters and convention centers as well as Lake Murray State Park, where residents can enjoy the outdoors on horseback or on the golf course. Residents can expect to pay around $157,000 for a home in Ardmore, the median home sale price.
