The South Carolina National Heritage Corridor is a federally designated National Heritage Area extending from the Appalachian Mountains to Charleston, South Carolina through seventeen counties of South Carolina. The Heritage Corridor promotes and interprets the state's history, with emphasis on European settlement, agriculture, African-American history, trade routes and the state's ports. Sites associated with the American Revolution and the American Civil War are also included.
The corridor draws interest off of the main highways to the smaller, more rural highways for less stressful drive and an easy pace which allows for stopping at interesting locations along the way, visiting historic sites, and sampling some of the South’s finest small, eclectic restaurants and whistle stops.
If you are not in a hurry to get to your destination, take the scenic route and drive the Heritage Corridor to see sights others only see on postcards.
