For the past 20 years I’ve lived off Highway 17 in Charleston Co., SC. I’ve put more miles on US 17 than I’d dare calculate, but most of it has been on the same stretch of road. Then one day I thought about how foolish that was, and so here I am with US 17 Coastal Highway, LLC. Our mission is to promote the arts, culture, history and nature along the Highway 17 Corridor. You don’t have to look far to find the richness – you just need to slow down and pay attention.
This website is a work-in-progress so please don’t hesitate to contact me with suggestions. Hopefully after you stop by, you’ll also plan your next road trip down Highway 17 – you’ll love it, I promise.
