Interstate 95 Practically Runs Through All Of South Carolina And It’s A Beautiful Drive
Covering more states in the country than any other interstate, spanning from Miami, Florida to Houlton, Maine, I-95 is considered one of the best interstate travel routes in the United States. The portion that runs through our state is a beautiful drive through South Carolina, with six notable places to enjoy along the way as time permits.
Interstate 95 first appeared on South Carolina maps between 1962 and 1964, with the first stretch constructed from Highway 17 north of Hardeeville to Ridgeville. From 1967 through 1972, the other sections were completed to the North Carolina state line. If you don’t have the time to break for the gorgeous scenery along the way, there are three welcome centers at mile markers 4, 99, and 195 and rest areas at mile markers 47, 99, and 139 with restrooms and vending machines for a much quicker stop if needed while traveling through. But when time permits, take a moment to stop and smell the roses, as they say. These 19 Pictures That Will Forever Change The Way You See South Carolina display even more of the state’s breathtaking beauty in areas beyond the I-95 passage.
