These Are 15 Absolutely Awesome Things To Do This Summer In South Carolina

The truth is there are so many things that you can do in a South Carolina summer. When asked, most people think of the places they can go that can really put a dent in your wallet. When I think of summer my mind automatically drifts back to my home in the Lowcountry. There were long, hot days of swinging on the swing my mom put up in the huge oak tree in the backyard, days of running barefoot on sun-kissed grass, swimming in the creek down the dirt road, eating tomato sandwiches and fresh sliced cucumbers out of the garden, and roasting marshmallows and hotdogs over an open fire in the yard. To me that is summer. So, I have compiled a list of childhood favorites as well as wonderful day trips.
