The quickest route is I-40 to Asheville, NC, then I-26 to Florence, SC.

A scenic route is more complicated. It depends on how scenic you want it to be. If I had the time (and it wasn't winter), I'd take 441 from GB to Cherokee, then take the Blue Ridge Parkway to Asheville, then I-26 to Florence.

When I was a kid the "scenic route" from Knoxville was all you had. With no A/C in the car all those small towns and traffic lights made for a miserable, hot trip. Truthfully, other than the part through the mountains, there really wasn't all that much scenery in my opinion unless you like driving past acre after acre of soybeans, peanuts and corn. The interstates have pretty much done in all the mom & pop tourist stops along those routes as well. I'll stick with the interstates and enjoy more of my time at MB.

I think I-40 is beautiful between the Sevierville exit and Asheville, as a matter of fact, it is one of my favorite drives.
