Overview

Located a half-hour north of Charleston, this former 1700s rice plantation and black water swamp is a scenic treasure, open to the public since 1932. One admission price allows visitors to follow meandering nature trails over foot bridges and through rice fields, admire azalea and magnolia gardens, take a flat bottom boat out onto the swamp (just follow the arrows on the cypress trees), and explore the Butterfly House, Aquarium and Reptile Center. There are also guides who take groups out on tour boats, but most folks like the chance to paddle and explore on their own. Bring a lunch to enjoy in the picnic and playground area while the kiddies romp on the giant spider web made of rope. Gift and snack shop. Parking is free. Don't forget your camera. - Natasha Lawrence
