The first night of this fly drive holiday is in The Olde English District of South Carolina with picture postcard pretty towns. Then head west ‘upcountry’ following the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Byway from Gaffney. The region has wonderful scenery and Indian heritage. The route then follows the Savannah River National Scenic Byway down to Augusta and Aiken in Thoroughbred Country where a blend of museums and stately houses detail the area’s unique architecture. On to the coast at Charleston, which has had a starring role in South Carolinas history for over 300 years and then to Georgetown with its opulent townhouses and rich antebellum past.
Imposing plantation house on a private estate.
Barely changed historic district with 73 pre-revolution buildings. Cobbled streets lined with boutique shops, art galleries and restaurants officering a taste of the Old South.
Seen as little Charleston and the ghost capital of the south.
Through National forests with the Blue Ridge escarpment looming majestically beyond.
Through beautiful country and quaint towns along the state border.
This drive goes past some of the South’s best preserved historic sites including Drayton Hall, Magnolia Gardens and Middleton Place.
