“I think what makes Lake City so unique is when you come to Lake City, what you expect is not what you get - you get more,” says Lake City Artfields Consultant, Carla Angus. Over recent years, this once-desolate town has transformed itself into a thriving economic and cultural scene.
Located just twenty-four miles south of Florence, this remote town is home to some of the most special events in South Carolina, earning it 2018’s ‘Best Small-Town Cultural Scene’ by USA Today.
Local business owner of Mosaic Clothing, Leah Norwood,says, “I would describe it [Lake City] as a place that has a lot of charm. To me, the reason why it has a lot of charm is because of the people here, and there’s just something special about that”.
With this type of reputation, it’s hard not to want to see it yourself.
