Some of our favorites include such breathtaking places as the cypress gardens in Moncks Corner, which isn’t just beautiful on its own – it’s also got an amazing butterfly garden, too! Yellow Branch Falls in Walhalla are so insanely beautiful that they deserve a mention – it’s a 50-foot-high waterfall that, for most of the year, flows in bits and pieces. It’s incredible. In Salem, you’ll find Lake Jocassee – stunning beautiful and oh-so-blue. If you’d like a longer list of some of our favorite beautiful places in South Carolina, check this article out!
