With nine total South Carolina Welcome Centers throughout the state, travelers will find no shortage of Southern hospitality when they make their way through the Palmetto State.
Eight Welcome Centers are located at key entry points along the state’s border, plus the welcome center near the center of the state in Orangeburg County along I-95 Southbound. Find your nearest location and plan a stop during your road trip.
These centers have comfort amenities similar to a rest stop (with restrooms and vending facilities), but they also come fully equipped with so much more: picnic areas, free Wi-Fi, coupons and deals for hotels and attractions, travel guides, brochures and, best of all, highly trained travel counselors to assist with trip planning.
The Welcome Centers are equipped with a variety of technology for guests to access additional information. Some centers include stand-alone kiosks with Google Maps and they are linked to a printer for printed directions, while wall-mounted kiosks allow for self-exploration on DiscoverSouthCarolina.com/ welcome-centers.
Visit during special events throughout the year, such as National Tourism Week held May 4–12, 2023. In the past, this annual event has included complimentary refreshments, coloring books and crayons, putting greens, beanbag tosses, shag and square dancing, and drawings for attractions and weekend getaways. Be sure to visit to see what’s in store.
