Travel Awaits Says These South Carolina Towns Remind Us Of Hallmark Movies
We all imagine what it’s like to live in the magical Hallmark Christmas movie worlds. And recently, Travel Awaits put out their list of the “12 Best South Carolina Christmas Towns” that remind us of those movies. So, for the most part these are those little towns away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. After all, that’s the charm, right?
And, each one has something traditional that sets it apart. So, in that way they all remind us of those typical Hallmark Christmas movie scenes. I’ll let you browse the article and find your favorite towns to see if and where they ranked. However, I’ll clue you in on a couple of highlights. Plus, I’ll throw in one of my own choosing.
So, coming in at number 1 on their list of Best South Carolina Christmas Towns Hallmark Style is Greenville, South Carolina. According to Travel Awaits, Greenville boasts a mini replica of Rockefeller Center for skating. And, you find street carolers strolling the city. Also, a special Kringle Holiday Market has something for everyone.
Early in our career, we lived in Greenville, South Carolina. It is definitely a charming town that holds a special place for me. And, I love the downtown vibe. So, I can see why it might remind someone of the Hallmark warm and fuzzies.
But, let’s talk about the town of Rock Hill, South Carolina. This one is right in my backyard. And, it comes in at number 11 on Travel Awaits list of Hallmark Christmas towns for the Palmetto State. Of course, you can mention Rock Hill without making note of Old Town and ChristmasVille. It looks so much like a Hallmark movie it’s hard to believe this award winning festival is real. But, it is!
Visitors enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides, carolers, gingerbread house making contests and so much more! It’s the gingerbread contest that’s straight out of the movie set. And, I love it.
Then, I decided to do a little digging and see if any other towns were worthy of Hallmark vibes. And, as it turns out, Conway, South Carolina near Myrtle Beach needs to be on the list. It’s home to Coastal Carolina University. And, not only is it super “Christmasy,” Hallmark actually made a movie set there in 2013. It’s called ‘Christmas in Conway.’
So, it centers around a terminally ill woman spending her final days in Conway. And, her husband hopes to build a ferris wheel in their backyard to remind her of where he proposed. Wow! And, it stars Andy Garcia, Mandy Moore and Mary Louise Parker. If that doesn’t say Hallmark, I don’t know what does.
So, take a look at the full list. Then, maybe visit some of the best Hallmark Christmas towns in South Carolina.
