Winter blues? Spring is on the way!

The foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains are beautiful year-round, but when new, tender leaves begin to emerge and paint the landscape a vivid green, spring has officially arrived! 

While you're here, you'll want to visit at least one of the nearly 150 waterfalls in the area. With so many options, you can choose a day-long adventure or pick from several that are only a short walk from the road, like Eastatoe Falls, shown here. 

Stop to visit the overlook at Caesars Head State Park which has long been known as one of the best views in South Carolina. It is stunning as you stand atop the outcropping and gaze at the Blue Ridge escarpment and Piedmont with the mountains of North Carolina and Georgia as a backdrop. 

For outdoor adventure, look no further than SCMountainLakes.com. Biking, horseback riding, boating, whitewater rafting, paddling, fishing, hiking, camping, golfing and antiquing are plentiful in Oconee County.  Plus there are lakes Hartwell, Keowee and Jocassee, rushing and lazy rivers, the federally-designated Wild and Scenic Chattooga, endless waterfalls, the Sumter National Forest and the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
