Top Activities in South Carolina
For Civil War buffs, a visit to the Fort Sumter National Monument is a must. This federal fort marks the site of the start of the Civil War, and today it hosts tours, museum exhibits, and a visitor center. You'll need to hop on a ferry to reach Fort Sumter, but the visitor center is located in downtown Charleston.
Get out and explore South Carolina's great outdoors in the Francis Marion National Forest, located just north of Charleston. This 259,000-acre forest offers canoeing, hiking, cycling, and boating, and it's the ideal place to see South Carolina's distinctive swamps, pine stands, marshes, and cypress groves.
To see one of South Carolina's most iconic natural features, make your way to Johns Island, just south of Charleston. Here you'll find Angel Oak, a Southern live oak that's estimated to be 500 years old. Its shade spans more than 17,000 square feet, and its longest branches stretch nearly 200 feet. Thanks to its location off Highway 700, Angel Oak also makes for a convenient stop en route to Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, and other waterfront attractions south of Charleston.
