South Carolina is full of natural wonders. Coming from Paris, Greenville and its surroundings can be easily reached from Atlanta airport in about 2 hours by car. It is also an ideal stopover on the road from the mountains to the ocean.

The Scenic Highway 11 from Greenville, also known as the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway, is a great place to explore with no less than 10 magnificent waterfalls dotted along the way. Then, while driving along Highway 11, in the shade of the Blue Ridge Mountains, appears an incredible rock that came out of the ground 350 million years ago: Table Rock. This astonishing granite elevation of more than 3,100-feet, offers sumptuous panoramas: The Slicking Falls which flow northwest with waters of a brilliant blue or the south face of the monolith which offers another panorama of the foothills, with the soothing Pinnacle Lake in its center. Not far away, a gorgeous stop at the Caesars Head State Park lookout that offers a panoramic view of Raven Cliff Falls. While waiting to be able to visit the site in person, Table Rock can be visited virtually 360° and for free by clicking here.
