October 20-21 | Georgetown's 29th Annual Wooden Boat Show will feature one of the nation's best wooden boat exhibits with more than 140 classic boats displayed on land and water, children's model boatbuilding, knot tying, maritime art and crafts, food, and music. A special attraction will be Saturday's Wooden Boat Challenge, when teams of two race to build a skiff and then test their boat's seaworthiness in an exciting rowing relay on the Sampit River. Selected by the Southeast Tourism Society as a "Top 20 Event" for October!

South Carolina's Prettiest Waterfalls Stand Side-by-Side
Autumn is just around the corner, which means it's time to go looking for leaves! The Eastatoe (pronounced "EAST-a-tow-ee") Valley in South Carolina's Upstate is considered one of the best places in the country to witness the change of colors as summer slips into fall.
While you're here, be sure to visit one of our state's many exquisite waterfalls. The doubly-beautiful Twin Falls
in Sunset, for example, is tucked just south of the state line. Believed by many to be among the most stunning waterfalls in South Carolina, it is also the most easily accessible, making it ideal for children, the elderly, people with disabilities, and your favorite four-legged friends.

Twin Falls is unusual in that, while privately-owned, it is open to all at no cost. This 25-acre swath of wilderness was preserved by a man whose dream was simply to "preserve little jewels of nature." A millionaire from Ohio named Phil Felburn
, he literally woke up in the morning and went shopping for waterfalls! Read our full article to discover Twin Falls
