Discovery Begins Here - Upcountry South Carolina

Welcome to South Carolina’s Upcountry. The six-county region, located in northwest South Carolina, has something for everyone. Quaint small towns and cosmopolitan downtowns, quiet mountain vistas and rollicking festivals, special events and activities are waiting to be discovered. Best of all, our moderate, four season climate assures that any time you visit is the right time!

If golf is your game, Upstate South Carolina’s mild climate and green landscapes of wide, rolling hills are ideal for your pursuit. With natural, quiet settings nestled between lakes and streams, both young and old, avid and amateur, golfers enjoy this sport year-round.

History is one of the attractions. One of the original 13 colonies, South Carolina is home to Revolutionary and Civil War sites, national parks, plantations and historic homes. The Upcountry has a plethora of museums to suit every passion—art, history, natural history and wildlife, in addition to the famous BMW museum.

The Upcountry is a paradise for the outdoor lover. There are opportunities for sportsmen, athletes, adventure seekers and nature lovers that can be discovered along with boisterous waterfalls, cool mountain streams and scenic vistas. Visitors can enjoy golf, tennis, hunting and fishing, camping, boating, whitewater rafting and horseback riding. Any trip to the Upcountry of South Carolina should include at least a few hours, if not a few days, on some of the area’s vast resource of hiking and biking trails.

We’re glad you’re here. Enjoy yourself and stay a spell.
