These 25 Towns In South Carolina Have The Best Main Streets You Gotta Visit

There was a time, before urban sprawl, when our South Carolina main streets were the heartbeat of the town. A place where people regularly met on the corner and in the establishments and kept up with each other. We took an armchair tour of some of South Carolina’s main streets and downtown areas today and are happy to report some look as beautiful as ever.  Buckle up, South Carolina, and let’s get this tour started.

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:

(A note about this story: I feel the need to acknowledge that most, if not all, of these photos were taken prior to the floods of 2015. But we – and the rest of the nation – are keenly aware that if South Carolinians are known for any one thing, it’s our ability to stand strong and bounce back in tough times. That one thing is called courage.)
