The Beautiful Trees And Old Homes Of Wade Hampton Are A Delight

There are so many charming towns in South Carolina, but Wade Hampton captures the image of a regal Southern town in spectacular ways.

Walk around town and you'll see beautiful trees with Spanish moss lining the roads and sidewalks. From tall pines and sprawling oaks, the trees deliver both comforting shade and a relaxing chorus of rustling leaves during windy days.

Hurricane are terrible, but they're beautiful at the same time. In this part of hurricane alley, you can witness nature's terrible power in all its beautiful splendor. Ever wonder why people risk their lives by staring at storms or even chasing storms? It's not specific stupidity in many cases; seeing the electrified skies, tasting the clean air full of water too torn and tossed to become rain, and hearing the trees sing is a beautiful play to behold before the howling and roaring winds begin.

The best areas in Wade Hampton, SC would be any area heading towards Greenville on Highway 29. So many nice restaurants, but I can't at all rate much of the city against itself. So much greenery, so much beauty. That's what living in Wade Hampton, SC is all about.
