Beat the heat summer treats.
It's that time of year when food festivals throughout the state will be inundated with a bounty of fresh, homegrown watermelons and cantaloupes. It's South Carolina tradition to keep cool with summertime favorites like cantaloupe mousse and all-natural watermelon popsicles. Or unwind porch-side, sipping watermelon margaritas. To learn more about refreshing summertime treats like these and the festivals that serve them, click here.



It ain't tea if it ain't sweet.
Around here, folks take great pride in preparing their sweet tea. Blend in Certified South Carolina peaches and enjoy the light, refreshing taste that was made for summer afternoons. For some of the best, visit Charleston Tea Plantation, America's only tea garden, and savor some of their homegrown peach-flavored tea. Or for something with a little more kick, try South Carolina's own Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka.



The Upstate's blue cheese tradition.
Give your summer salads, sandwiches and dips a daring dash of Clemson Blue Cheese. The bold-flavored delight is aged in Newman Hall at Clemson University and has been an Upstate tradition for generations. Originally it was cured in Stumphouse Tunnel and today guests are invited to tour the tunnel. Get it by the wedge, wheel or crumbled, online or at '55 Exchange, and you'll have a delicious complement to any summer dish.
