Five Fabulous Ways to Enjoy Fall in South Carolina

#1) Apples, Potatoes, and Pumpkins – Oh My!

Visiting a farm is a great way to celebrate harvest season in South Carolina. Fall fruits and vegetables – such as apples, sweet potatoes, and pumpkins – are delicious and plentiful. Looking for a way to get to know your neighborhood farmers? Why not join a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for the best deals on the freshest produce in the state! Learn more with our guide to South Carolina Farms and Orchards.
#2) Learn More about Learning

September means back to school, and SCIWAY has the resources you need to help you learn more about learning in South Carolina. Year after year, we feature our state's #1 online guides to SC K12 Schools and SC Colleges & Universities.
#3) Fall is a-MAZE-ing!

What would autumn be without a hayride and a corn maze, where you can run and play in the fields before they are cut for winter? Here in South Carolina, corn mazes usually last through the end of September, so be sure to catch them while you can! Visit our guide to South Carolina Corn Mazes to learn the "when and where."
#4) Find Fun at the Fair!

Every fall, people of all ages flock to South Carolina fairs. The wide variety of exhibits, thrilling rides, and unique food – such as chocolate-covered bacon, fried coke, fried Twinkies, and even fried candy bars – draws visitors from around our state. South Carolina has nine fairs in all – find each one here!
#5) Go for the Gold!

Goldenrod is South Carolina's State Wildflower, and it grows profusely in fields, along roadsides, and beside fence lines. Look for its bright yellow blossoms from early September through the first frost. Its flowers attract a range of birds, insects, butterflies, and bees. They can be used to make a rich natural dye.
