Follow The Beautiful Lakeshore Along This Scenic Drive Through South Carolina

If you’ve ever found yourself on Interstate 95 in the Santee area, then you’ve undoubtedly driven over the Francis Marion Bridge which crosses Lake Marion. You know the one; it’s the one spot on Interstate 95 where you have to force yourself to keep your eyes on the road even though you’re completely mesmerized by the surroundings (in this case, the water view). Take in more of the lovely views of both Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie on this abbreviated 54-mile scenic drive through South Carolina along the lakeshore, complete with places to stop, eat, gawk, swim, and more.

Who says a scenic road trip needs to be so long it empties your tank and your wallet? Not this one! Pop in the car and go take this short 54-mille scenic drive through South Carolina along two of the prettiest lakes in the state.
