Southern Living has written about Travelers Rest
Southern Living Magazine has named three towns in South Carolina the best in the South. These towns are all in South Carolina. The magazine says that each of the 20 places on its list of places to rest or explore has something to offer tourists or people looking for a new place to live.
The 12th spot on the list goes to Travellers Rest, a “nice small town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.” There is a 22-mile Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail and interesting shops and restaurants of the highest quality. There is also a museum about the town’s history for people who want to learn more.
Aiken, which has been called a horse town that looks like it belongs on a postcard, comes in at number 10. The listing’s main draw is the Aiken Horse Show, but it also says there are “great inns and bed-and-breakfasts.” The Aiken Art Annex, Boyd Pond, The Center for African American History, Arts, and Culture, the Henderson Heritage Preserve, and other places are also used.
The first place, though, goes to a small town that has been on other lists. Southern Living calls Beaufort a “Lowcountry gem” with trees covered in moss.
