Summerville opens Sweet Tea Trail

It's a sweet day


  • Jonathan Boncek
After laborious research, Summerville can now lay claim to being the birthplace of sweet tea. To commemorate this finding, the County Chamber of Commerce is opening the Sweet Tea Trail, a path that guides visitors through five districts in Summerville. The plan was designed to help promote shopping, dining, and historical spots in town. 

The trail opens Tuesday, Oct. 8 with a celebration that will include a Sweet Tea Bar, treats, games, and more. Summerville Mayor Bill Collins and the Director of S.C. Parks Duane Parrish will also be on hand to say a few words about the Southern staple.

The event starts at 11 a.m. in Town Hall on North Main Street. Guests are asked to RSVP to Alicia Smith at (843) 873-2931 or
