South Carolina packs delightful scenic variety into a relatively small area. Understandably, the state's tourism industry is huge, hosting over 30 million visitors annually. However, most tourists come for the superb beaches, golf, tennis, entertainment, restaurants, shopping, and fine weather of the coastal areas. These destinations offer tremendous attractions, but the rest of the state of South Carolina offers the same seductive weather and much more. The Palmetto State presents charming small towns, quaint bed-and-breakfast accommodations, numerous historic sites (the state's recorded history dates to 1526), beautiful rural countryside, a variety of recreational opportunities, and outstanding natural attractions. Authors John F. Clark and Patricia A. Pierce are marvelous companions on each of this guide's 21 drives, showing travelers both where to go, and when to stop.
