Social Distancing in the South Carolina Mountains
Updated: Oct 13, 2021
A term you might be hearing all too often at the moment is "social distancing". With all of the extreme measures that have been put into place because of the Coronavirus scare, it can be difficult to find any activities to do that don't involve other human beings.
Luckily, in Lake Hartwell Country, social distancing is pretty easy. We've created a list of ways to get out of your house and enjoy our region in the midst of these crazy times.
Take a Hike
Ahhhh... hiking, a relaxing activity that only requires you, a pair of hiking shoes, and a trail to follow. There are several great hiking trails in Lake Hartwell Country, and you can read more about them here. As long as your hiking party is less than 10 people, this is a perfect way to be socially distant!
Visit a State Park
Our amazing South Carolina State Parks are open to the public! Each one in the region offers something a little bit different, depending on your social distancing style. For breathtaking hikes and mountain views, head to Table Rock or Oconee State Park. Are you more of a lake life person? Then you'll definitely want to check out Sadlers Creek, Lake Hartwell, Keowee-Toxaway, or Devils Fork State Park. There's something for everyone!
