Come for the football. Stay for the Beacon Drive-In.

Something tells me this is going to be a hard sell.

    Ah, the Beacon. On the shady side of Spartanburg (go Terriers) and makes the Varsity seem like a healthy choice.

    Like most people who aren’t from South Carolina….. we’ve never heard of it

      It’s actually semi-famous in the upstate. Like the Varsity with worse food and no attitude, and the sweetest tea that ever made your teeth hurt.

        Again, like most people who aren’t from South Carolina, “the upstate”? Never heard of it.

          There are basically two parts to SC. Upstate and Low Country. Low Country consists of the coast, i.e. Charleston, Hilton Head, etc. Upstate is the flatter land. Columbia and Clemson are Upstate.

            I usually refer to anything West of Columbia, including Greenville and Spartanburg, as upstate.

              Columbia mIght be midlands. Then there’s the Pee Dee, home of South of the Border.

                I’m not from SC, but my firm has an office in the Upstate. Isn’t the Pee Dee that area between Greenville-Spartanburg and the NC border? And truly the crappy part of the state?

    And they didn’t even mention South of the Border.

    And then to the Low Country for a hunting trip with the debs

  5. I post very little but I’m a Georgia alum originally from SC (I chose to go to UGa out-of-state to the chagrin of my Carolina and Clemson alum relatives).

    Lowcountry usually refers to the coast below Charleston, sometimes to the coast below Georgetown and only rarely to the entire SC coast. The coast north of Georgetown to the NC line is usually called the Grand Strand. Sometimes Horry (where Myrtle Beach is located) and Georgetown Counties are included in the Pee Dee, which is the area inland of the coast (bordered by the Pee Dee River, go figure) roughly to Sumter, where begins the Midlands. The Midlands run west past Columbia roughly to the Newberry area, where begins the Upstate.

    That’s your SC geography lesson for today.
