Turkey, Shopping, and Holiday Fun

· Itinerary,Food and Drink,Beautiful Drives

It's that time of year again. 

Thanksgiving is here. The leaves have fallen, the air is crisp, and many of us are making the most important grocery list of the year, the one for the Thanksgiving meal. Once the turkey is packed away with the leftovers, it's time to get out and explore. Whether you're looking for reason to get out of the kitchen, or need to send visiting relatives on an adventure, we've got you covered. 

Check back often this week, as we'll be adding events and tips for how to spend Thanksgiving week in Lake Hartwell Country. Private message us on Facebook or DM us on Instagram with event information or to tell us your favorite way to spend the holiday here. 

Experience the rising moon by boat, on Lake Jocassee.

Feel the fresh, crisp mountain air and relax as Jocassee Lake Tours allows you a front row seat to the Full Moon Rising. 

Check their website for other daytime tours and special events happening this week.

It's probably a once in a lifetime event, and it's a short drive from almost anywhere in Lake Hartwell Country.

The World Famous Budweiser Clydesdales are coming to downtown Greenville on Black Friday. They'll start their march down Main Street at Noon, and stop at Ice on Main for photos. Watch them as they deliver Budweiser products to downtown restaurants.

Learn more about the event and spend the day in Upstate South Carolina during your Lake Hartwell Country Thanksgiving vacation.

Kick off Christmas on Black Friday with the Polar Express at Denver Downs Farm. Looking for the perfect Friday evening after Thanksgiving with your friends and family? This is it! You and your family are invited to join Denver Downs Farm for a special drive in showing of the Polar Express. Get comfy and cozy with your family with Hot Chocolate, Pizza, and S'mores by the bonfires. Bring your own tailgating or purchase your hot chocolate and s'mores supplies at the event. This event will sell out, so purchase your tickets ahead of time online. The movie starts at 5:30pm Friday evening. Start a new tradition with Denver Downs and the Polar Express. 

After the turkey, and Black Friday, it's time for one of our favorite days of the year, Small Business Saturday. Here at Lake Hartwell Country, you could say we're in the business of local business. The beauty, the hospitality, and the unique finds you can only get here are the result of small businesses. The local breweries. The coffee shop on Main Street. The unique painting from a local artist.

Lake Hartwell Country is home to far too many small businesses to name, but you'll find them around every corner in Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens Counties. Wander Main Street in Anderson, Clemson, Seneca, Walhalla and Pickens. Drive scenic Highway 11 and stop when you see the local store or restaurant. Tag us with your Small Business Saturday finds and adventures so we can share the excitement. 

You can't miss getting outside in Lake Hartwell Country. Our State Parks, campgrounds, hiking and biking trails, fishing, and scenic drives are only the beginning of what you can explore here. 

There are trails for all abilities at Table Rock State Park, and you can end your adventure with a stop at Victoria Valley Vineyards

Whether you're cooking, eating, shopping or exploring, this Thanksgiving week is sure to be one to remember in Lake Hartwell Country.
