SCIWAY, pronounced "sky-way," is an acronym for the South Carolina Information Highway. It's also the name of this website, which is the largest and most comprehensive directory of South Carolina information on the Internet.

Most of the 4,000,000 people who visit SCIWAY each year either live in South Carolina or want to move here or vacation here.

SCIWAY includes over 50,000 links to other South Carolina websites as well as an amazing collection of maps, charts, articles, and other resources we've developed. It is organized by subject areas – such as education, history, jobs, real estate, and tourism – and has three main goals:
  1. To help South Carolinians and people throughout the world find information about South Carolina quickly and easily.

  2. To give people a space to create a thriving repository of SC culture and information.

  3. To celebrate the Palmetto State's unparalleled people and places.

Who is SCIWAY?

SCIWAY is run by Tara Bailey, Kerri Fitts, and Robin Welch, a team of three women who love South Carolina a rather ridiculous amount. ;) We are also joined by the inimitable Brandon Coffey, who manages our Facebook group for the SC Picture Project. Lastly, we work with a fantastic team of photographers on a daily basis, and we are deeply grateful to them.

SCIWAY's Story

SCIWAY was originally created by Rod Welch at The Citadel in early 1996 as a learning and public service project. Since 1997 it has been privately funded, and it is now published by SCIWAY.net, LLC, a James Island web information company. While SCIWAY is in many ways a public service, it receives no government funding.

We also publish SCIWAY News, an email newsletter about South Carolina ... the South Carolina Picture Project, an online historical repository documenting our state's landmarks and landscapes ... South Carolina Plantations, a site about South Carolina's 1800+ plantations ... and HotelGuides.com, which provides useful information about places to stay in US cities and towns.

SCIWAY is a member of the Better Business Bureau of Central South Carolina and Charleston Area. We have a rating of A+.
