Now and then nothing will do but a drive in country. When a movie or a museum won’t distract you and a day at the spa won’t relax you, then you need to head out to the open road and just drive. See the small towns and interesting places that make the Lake Hartwell area one of the most visited lakes in the United States. You will see things that will make you smile, make you think and most of all make you relax and get into the sound of the wind and the tires on the pavement.
