There’s Nothing Quite As Magical As The Tunnel Of Trees You’ll Find At Botany Bay In South Carolina

Few things are more quintessential to South Carolina than Southern live oaks with strand after stand of Spanish moss swaying in the breeze. Finding those trees planted on either side of a road reaching high above to form a tunnel, though, is positively magical. There are several key places in South Carolina where you can drive beneath an enchanting tunnel of trees, but none are as beautiful as the tunnel found on Botany Bay Road at Edisto.
