This South Carolina Locale Is The Only Public Garden In The U.S. That’s Home To All Seven Species Of Swans
South Carolina is home to a number of gorgeous must-see gardens. There’s a topiary garden, a swamp garden, several botanical gardens, and many more. But there’s only one garden where you’ll find all seven species of swans. In fact, it’s the only garden in the entire country where this is true.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
The gardens are open year-round from 7:30 a.m. until dusk. Admission is free. Learn more about Swan Lake Iris Gardens right here.
Editor’s note: There seems to be a dispute over how many species of swan still remain in the world. The City of Sumter website reports it at eight. However, various Internet sources report six and seven.
