The Midwest might have Route 66, but I think many of the places and people along U.S. Highway 78 in South Carolina make for a great day trip that will take you all the way to Charleston!

  • Blackville

    There are two stops I recommend. One is in town, the other a few miles off 78 on Highway 3.
