According to Only In Your State, there are several places in South Carolina to visit, and many of them are local to the Western Upstate. There are a plethora of reasons to visit them, but here are just a few.
- Anderson – Did you know that Anderson is considered “The Friendliest City in South Carolina”? Anderson is celebrating its biennial International Festival from Jan. 8 – Feb. 20, which will feature Italian flare.
- Seneca – Considered an underrated town, Seneca has many areas that exhibit a beauty to behold. Only In Your State ranked it as No. 5 on the list of Safest and Most Beautiful Places to live last year.
- Travelers Rest – Affectionally, known as “TR” to locals, Travelers Rest is known for its Cherokee Valley Golf Course. But, it is also known for its barbecue food and becoming the new home of Furman University since annexing Furman in 2013.
These are just some of the many highlights of our local area. The Powell Group invites one and all to come see why our local food and beautiful scenery will entice anyone to stay.
