Matchless for Beauty and Hospitality

Manning is convenient to Interstate 95 in the popular Santee-Cooper region. Manning’s beauty is highlighted along the streets lined with oaks and antebellum homes. East of Manning is Ox Swamp, where General Francis Marion became known as the Swamp Fox during the Revolutionary War. An artist’s concept of Francis Marion’s encounters with the British in 1780-81 in the county are depicted on murals in Manning and also in nearby Summerton and Turbeville. For those who enjoy nature, Pocotaligo Park just north of Manning provides a boardwalk through 40 acres of swamp. Nearby Lake Marion is known for its landlocked striped bass and Manning celebrates this famous fish at the annual Striped Bass Festival.
