Disclosure: This article on South Carolina Fall Road Trip Ideas is written in partnership with Bluff Road Auto Sales in Columbia, South Carolina.

Even though the temperatures may cause some confusion, it is officially fall here in South Carolina. School is back in session (YES!). Football season is here. Pumpkin Spice Latte’s are available again. And it’s the perfect time to plan quick weekend road trips here in the state of South Carolina.

Living in Columbia, South Carolina there are so many great locations we are able to visit within a few hours. While the summer is primarily for beach travel for our family –  fall is all about great sites to see the changing leaves, fairs and festivals.

South Carolina Fall Road Trip Ideas

Greenville, South Carolina

Approximately 100 miles from Columbia, Greenville is also known as Bikeville because of the large number of trails for recreational and avid bicycle riders. Main Street is, also, lined with local stores and restaurants – many with outdoor dining. Falls Park on the Reedy, located in downtown Greenville’s Historic West End, is one of Greenville’s greatest treasures. It is a beautiful public park clustered around a 50-foot waterfall that is best viewed from a sweeping pedestrian bridge.

Newberry, South Carolina

Less than an hour away from Columbia, Newberry is a quaint town that offers sites and attractions for almost anyone. My personal favorite is the Wells Japanese Garden – a Newberry landmark that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Big Mo – Monetta, SC

This is on our list of must-dos this fall. The Big Mo provides an authentic drive-in experience each Friday and Saturday evening and is less than an hour from Columbia, SC

Have you ever been to the Midlands’ OG drive-in, The Big Mo? (You’d know it by the giant peach.) 🍑 They’re doing a #LDW triple-screener of 3 movies each — gates open at 7 + movies start at dark. // Our pick? Screen 3 with The Sandlot, Grease + Dirty Dancing. // 📷: @casjoy91

This is a must for us each year as it’s the fair that I grew up attending every year with my family. Elephant ears are a must!
