July/August 2017One for All and All for South Carolinaby Joey Frazier

Tourism groups partner with the SCDNR to promote fun in the Palmetto State.

My family rarely takes long vacations to far-away places. We prefer weekend getaways or day trips right here in South Carolina. At first, you might think we are limiting ourselves by only traveling within the confines of our home state, but the reality is quite the opposite. There is so much to see and do - especially outdoors - right here in our own backyard.

So what do you enjoy: hiking, camping, fishing, paddling, hunting, sunning, birding, photography? Well, South Carolina has all that and much more in abundance - the question is where to begin? Like a pick two or pick three menu at your favorite restaurant, the South Carolina Association of Tourism Regions (SCATR) offers "more than you can shake a stick at," to quote my grandmother. You can get started by going to scatr.com and choosing one of the eleven tourism regions listed on their home page. One click and you are on your way to a down home good time.

To view each region, please click the links below.
