Lake Hartwell Country

They say time stops for no one, but tucked away in the northeast corner of South Carolina, there's a place that might cause you wonder. Discover the hidden gems in the region where Water Falls and History Calls just off Interstate 85 halfway between Atlanta and Charlotte, NC. Leave your work clothes at home. Take home a new attitude.

The Wild and Scenic Chattooga River beckons you to run its rapids, and hidden waterfalls beg to be discovered. Trails call to be hiked, and lakes have to be fished. State and local parks invite you to replace time with your iPad with time playing "I Spy" with the kids. Come. Get away.

Home to two statewide agricultural attractions – the SC Botanical Gardens and the Bart Garrison Agricultural Museum of South Carolina – and to deep-water lakes teeming with recreational opportunities, you will want to forget your watch and tell time only by the sun and stars. Make time to see the Walhalla State Fish Hatchery where trout are raised to stock streams and rivers. Take a picnic lunch…and bring your camera to capture the memories. You'll want these moments to last forever.

Small towns share their stories in local history museums and invite visitors to enjoy their festivals. Quaint shops where antiques and local crafts line the shelves and restaurants where comfort food is defined call you away from the busy-ness of life. Living history events transport you to a time before clocks ruled our lives and when doing things the old way was the only way.

Concerts and street dances, festivals and 4th of July Celebrations, you remember how it used to be... it's still that way here. Give yourself permission to slow down... relax... breathe...

Plan your trip to the place where time can stop – at least for awhile. The world can wait.
