Memorial Day is fast approaching – and the Upstate of South Carolina is full of wonderful places, events and local businesses to visit! Home to three lakes (Lake Hartwell, Lake Jocassee and Lake Keowee), numerous rivers and waterfalls, historical downtown districts and other unique attractions and events, Oconee and Pickens Counties are the perfect vacation destination.
Located in the western corner of South Carolina and nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains both Oconee and Pickens county are a nature lovers dream come true! With over 160 waterfalls between the two counties, hiking and biking trails range from low intensity to strenuous and should be properly planned and mapped out. Most waterfalls in the area are easily accessible and even have picnic or designated camping areas.
