CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A Lowcountry roadway has been named one of the most beautiful drives in the United States!
Big 7 Travel rounded up the best scenic drives from across the country and Charleston’s very own Ashley River Road made its top 50 list.
The roadway – part of the Ashley River Historic District – was ranked #40 between the Newport Loop in Rhode Island and Badlands Loop Scenic Byway in South Dakota.
Thought to be the oldest road in South Carolina still in use today, Big 7 Travel highlighted Ashley River Road for its “moss-draped live oak tree canopy” draped over the 11.5-mile stretch, helping to preserve the road’s historic character.
Alabama’s Coastal Connection ranked #1, while Wyoming’s Mirror Lake Scenic Byway rounded out the list at #50.
