Everyone In South Carolina Should Take This Underappreciated Scenic Drive

One of the prettiest drives in all of South Carolina is a mere 20 miles in length but what it lacks in drive time, it more than makes up for in natural sights along the road. Found between Walhalla and the North Carolina border, the Oscar Wigington Memorial Highway winds up, over, and through the mountains and affords all who venture onto it astounding views and a wonderful connection to the great outdoors.

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!

The Oscar Wigington Memorial Highway Scenic Drive is also part of the longer Falling Waters Scenic Byway, which clocks in at 13 miles. Extend your scenic journey by taking them both in on the same trip! See more of the route by visiting our friends at AllTrails!
