Santee Travel Tips
Why Bother With Santee Vacation Rentals?'
As its tourism site states, Santee is "America's Value Golf Destination" with many golf packages for less than $60. You can add even more value to your vacation when you choose to stay in a vacation rental. Browse through the listing of Lake Marion condos to look for Santee lake homes that are the size you want at the price you need. Nothing beats a Santee vacation when you stay in a vacation rental.
Golfing in Santee
Just because many golf packages at less than $60 doesn't mean that Santee's golf life is cheap. There are three golf courses in the town proper and many more within driving distance. Over 150,000 golfers annually make a pilgrimage to this city.
Off the Links
For those who don't want to spend all their time on the golf course, Santee is known for its nature scene. Two lakes, hiking, hunting and fishing are all available for the outdoor enthusiast. Local retailers rent out canoes, kayaks and jet skis. The Palmetto Trail in Santee is South Carolina's largest bicycle and pedestrian trail, and there's plenty of room to store your bike when you stay in one of the many available Santee vacation rentals. The tourism site also has a month-by-month "wildlife calendar" showing wildlife events that visitors should consider to help make Santee such a great destination. (For example, you can see bald eagles in November.)
