Manning Hotels

In rural South Carolina, in the very heart of Clarendon County, is Manning – a town that lies amid land etched into the history of the Revolutionary War. That's partly because it was one of the stalking grounds of legendary soldier Francis Marion, whose nickname the "Swamp Fox" was earned amid the wilds surrounding Manning. His adventures are commemorated in murals in the town, and today you can get stuck into the untamed countryside of the region yourself during your stay in Manning.

Things to see

Manning enjoys pride of place in close proximity to Lake Marion. This is one of the most attractive natural landmarks in the whole state of South Carolina, and when you lay eyes on it you'll know why. This vast, sparkling body of water is sometimes called South Carolina's very own inland sea, with hundreds of miles of shoreline surrounded by rolling fields, forested areas, and the marshland that General Marion staked a claim on centuries ago. Gazing out at the lake while the sun sets provides a bewitching sight, and hikers will be in their element on the winding trails through the lush vegetation. And if you want to be active on the water itself, there's windsurfing and other water sports to be enjoyed along the lake. For yet more nature to the north of Manning, head to Pocotaligo Park, which has a boardwalk through 40 acres of swampland – it'll bring out the inner hillbilly in even the most hardened urbanite. If more genteel pastimes are your thing, you'll want to pay a visit to Wyboo Golf Club, which boasts an immaculately manicured course with 18 holes and challengingly placed bunkers.

Hotels in Manning

The fact that this isn't a hotspot flooded with tourists means the area makes for an idyllic getaway. It's also reflected in the fact that the hotels in Manning are fairly low key, offering all the conveniences you could want without excessive glitz or glamor. What you will get is a home away from home, with comfortable, unshowy guestrooms which typically come with cable televisions and WiFi access. Anyone here for work will also be glad to find business centers available at many hotels, while anyone here for rest and relaxation will enjoy going for a dip in the swimming pool or lying back in the spa.

Where to stay

There are a handful of hotels in Manning around the town center, but you can always look a little further afield if you'd like more choice. There is some good accommodation to be found to the northwest of Manning, in the area around Sumter. Alternatively, anyone looking to really make the most of Lake Marion and the rustic beauty around it might prefer to book a hotel just to the south of Manning.
