Trip Guide: Georgetown to Lake City

Lake City is preparing to welcome many new friends to town in April. When you come, you’ll want to spend several hours exploring the art, tasting the food and enjoying the events.

Meanwhile, to help you plan your trip, we’ll be publishing a series of posts about the stops you might plan along the way from (or back to) nearby towns in South Carolina.

In this trip planner edition, we’re covering the Georgetown to Lake City route (via Highway 51 to Highway 512 to Highway 314). Hemingway, Nesmith and Johnsonville are the towns along the route. Please add any other stops you’d recommend in the comments section.
