What Is SCIWAY?


See also Your Privacy on SCIWAY | What SCIWAY Doesn't Do | Feedback


SCIWAY, pronounced "sky-way," is an acronym for 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 7 million 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 four 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 provide information about South Carolina that isn't available anywhere else on the Internet – and in some cases, even in print.

  4. To celebrate the Palmetto State's unparalleled people and places.
SCIWAY was originally created 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 ... South Carolina Plantations, a site about South Carolina's 1800+ plantations ... an alphabetical directory of South Carolina information called SC Zoom! ... 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 are rated A+.

While SCIWAY is updated and improved daily by a handful of people, it reflects the work of thousands of South Carolinians. Without their talents, energy, ideas, and assistance, SCIWAY would not exist.

If you have an idea about how we could improve SCIWAY ... or if your company or organization would like to advertise on SCIWAY, please write service@sciway.net or call us at 843-795-3951.

Please note that we cannot provide telephone numbers or answer questions about South Carolina.
