Looking for a great way to spend a weekend or afternoon? Take the Lake City walking tour, which hits the highlights of the downtown retail district, and enjoy the sights and feel of our community. Park along our beautifully-appointed Main Street and start at the end of Main Street, at the Gaskins family homestead and Rotary Park across from the East Main neon sign. You'll be able to stop into Seven Boutique, Lake City's own monogram commission and gift boutique, Jones Alley (planted with clippings from Moore Farms Botanical Garden), the ArtFields Gallery, and more!
Take a break at the Inn at the Crossroads and enjoy their fine selection of Southern-influenced cuisine and craft cocktails, then browse Ward's Shoes for the perfect pair of kicky shoes or Bold and Sassy for adorable kid's clothes. Stroll across the railroad tracks to West Main Street and incredible shopping opportunities are on the way, including at Olio Pottery Studio, a full-service DIY pottery and painting studio, and Mosaic, an upscale boutique for women that stocks all your favorite famed designers. Looking to be pampered? Schedule a mani/pedi or haircut at So-Lace Spa and Salon and experience the bliss of true craftsmanship and care.
Be sure to take a spin down Sauls Street, one block from Main, to see all of what Lake City has to offer, from stunning antiques at The Elegant Bee to traditional Southern cuisine at Rabbit's BBQ. Also, if you're an outdoors man, Marshall's Marine located at 114 East Myrtle Beach Highway is your one-stop shop for boats, equipment, and more-whether you're a hunter, fisher, or enthusiast, you'll find what you need in their spacious warehouse.
