You’ll Never Forget A Trip Through This Old Gold Mine In South Carolina

(Editor’s note: Since publication, this attraction in McCormick, South Carolina, has permanently closed.)

The Palmetto State is full of secret little attractions that few people know about. For instance, there’s an historic gold mine hiding in South Carolina. In fact, it’s so well hidden that trying to find an address for it on the Internet is a bit like panning for gold itself. But we scored the address – and some photos. Check it out below.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

The website for this gold mine says they’re open from May through October on the first and third Saturdays and Sundays of the month. You’ll pay a small fee to pan for gold and can also choose to screen for gems instead. What fun! Get more information on their official website.
