Dreher Island State Park In South Carolina Is A Big Secluded Treasure

Feeling a whim to plan a day trip or even a weekend getaway – even if it takes place a few months from now? Sometimes, having a little adventure to look forward to is the best medicine for feeling cooped up and stuck in a routine. Dreher Island State Park is so centrally located in South Carolina that you can do both: take a day trip to check it out – and then, once you’re sold on how amazing this little gem is, plan something a little longer.
