It’s Impossible Not To Love The Most Eccentric Town In South Carolina

Nothing says South Carolina more than the tiny lovable little communities scattered all over our fine state. Some of them are just census-designated with seemingly no desire to incorporate into an official town. But we still use the word “town” interchangeably due to the sense of community found in these small places. Such is the case with the little “town” community of Cleveland, SC – where what you see is not what you get. This eccentric little community has plenty of delightful surprises.

Head west on one of the prettiest scenic highways in the Upstate, SC-11 – a.k.a. the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Byway, and you’ll find it ends at Highway 276 in Greenville County.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Did you know Cleveland has so much to see and do? Did you know about the old moonshine still hidden under a waterfall? And what about that old Wild West Amusement Park? What do you remember about that place? We’d love to know your thoughts in our comments.
