Call Melanie for your tour today 864.940.5766 Featured Property a man named Prince who was one of the first settlers in the area. Prince had a niece from Italy who visited his property one summer and as she crested a hill coming upcountry from Spartanburg, she saw fields of waving, green corn. She uttered the words, "campo bello" of the scenic panorama, which means "beautiful fields," in Italian. The settlement was once a stopover on the old Blackstock Road route for traders driving cattle and other livestock to Columbia and Charleston markets. More than a century later the tiny town is still in existence with a population that hovers around 453. For a trip to the past, stop in to see the Country Peddler antique store located in an old grocery/corn mill building. A favorite gathering place is the Dutch Plate restaurant owned by a Pennsylvania Dutch family where you can get three daily meals. The best times to go are at breakfast or brunch when activity is highest. It's when old gents meet up to eat and swap tall tales. [] DRIVE: Scenic Cherokee Foothills Highway 11 The Upstate's most scenic drive runs through five Upstate counties of Greenville, Pickens, Oconee, Spartanburg and Cherokee for 112 miles. Along the way see some of the highlights of the region: Keowee-Toxaway State Park, the gateway to Jocassee Gorges, Dark Corner and others. Pick a peach at Perdeaux Fruit Farm in Traveler's Rest. Two historical bridges can be seen near the byway's intersection with S.C. 101 in Greenville County: Campbell Bridge and Poinsett Bridge. To download a map, go to
