Roll The Windows Down And Take A Drive Down Savannah River National Scenic Byway In South Carolina
One of the best things about spring and fall in South Carolina is the ability to roll down the windows and take a nice, long drive out in the country. Get away from it all for a morning or an afternoon when you head to the westernmost part of the Palmetto State for this 100-mile relaxing adventure on an underrated (and therefore, little-known) national scenic byway.
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/
You can, of course, reverse the order and head in the opposite direction. Regardless of your starting point in South Carolina, it’s worth the journey to get to this relatively undiscovered scenic highway for a peaceful adventure that’s ideal for cooler weather seasons. For a map of the scenic route, see this link. (Of note: some of the parks mentioned here charge a nominal admission fee. Learn more, including fees and park hours, on the official website for South Carolina State Parks.)
