Congaree National Park

A trip to South Carolina offers something for all ages and interests. The Palmetto State has served as a scenic backdrop for numerous movies including favorites like Forrest Gump, The Patriot, and The Abyss. Charleston’s historic architecture, cobblestone streets, and beautiful gardens were used in the romantic films The Notebook and Dear John, based on bestselling books by author Nicholas Sparks. North Charleston was the setting for the TV drama Army Wives for seven seasons, and Abbeville starred alongside Julia Roberts in the thriller Sleeping with The Enemy.

Famous for its stunning beaches, South Carolina is also known for world-class golfing destinations like Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head Island, and Kiawah Island. Cheraw State Park Golf Course and Hickory Knob Golf Course offer challenging terrain plus scenic 

views of lakes, forests, and wildlife at affordable prices. Santee is known for value-priced golf venues, championship fishing, and scenic nature and hiking trails.

You’ll find a wide choice of family-friendly activities throughout the state. Visit Ripley’s Aquarium at Myrtle Beach or view historic landmarks like Fort Sumter National Monument. Quaint Charleston is home to museums, antebellum homes and the BMW Factory Tour. Car racing fans won’t want to miss Darlington Raceway for an action-packed day of thrills.

Outdoor enthusiasts can choose from 47 state parks spanning 80,000 acres from the mountains to the coast.  Admire the fall foliage in the upstate region, sample farm-to-table cuisine, pick your own fruit at an apple orchard, or go whitewater rafting on the Chattooga River. Kings Mountain State Park is a popular spot for fishing, hiking, kayaking, and horseback riding. Winter offers skiing at Table Rock State Park, an hour from Greenville, ice skating at Columbia’s Plex Indoor Sports and Ice venue, or the thrill of watching college basketball at the University of South Carolina.

Take a scenic drive through the Upcountry and enjoy views of mountains and more than 30 waterfalls, or explore historic sites significant in the American Revolutionary War. For those who prefer the excitement of city life, South Carolina offers many walkable downtown areas brimming with historic mansions, museums, art galleries, dining spots, and shops. Stroll the historic cities of Abbeville, Aiken and Beaufort, or marvel at the beauty of Charleston, Columbia, and Georgetown.
