The One National Park In South Carolina That Every True South Carolinian Should Visit At Least Once
South Carolina is home to one of the country’s most hidden national parks. On the whole, the Congaree National Park preserves the largest swatch of old growth bottomland hardwood forest in the country. But Congaree is much more than just a forest. It’s also characterized as a swamp… a swamp with enormous old cypress trees. In fact, Congaree’s old growth trees include the largest concentration of champion trees in the world. (Champion trees are labeled as such due to their size and significance.)
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
