COVID-19 has changed the world. The tourism industry has been one of the hardest hit areas of the global pandemic. Local restaurants, museums, state and national parks have all changed hours of operation, procedures, and some have gone out of business altogether.
Please verify current operations of any places you want to visit mentioned in these articles, and contact me if a business has permanently closed so I can update the article. Thank you and stay safe out there!
Nestled along the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the South Carolina Mountain Lakes region is the only place in the state with mountain tops, scenic overlooks, and gorgeous waterfalls. Loosely tied together along the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Byway (SC Highway 11) the region boasts eight state parks, a couple of lakes, and miles of scenic drives. After seeing these photos I dare you to not want to book a trip to these mountains.
