South Carolina is not only a destination, but also a pass-through state for those traveling along the east coast. Scores and scores of travelers pass up and down the Interstate 95 corridor each year; all are headed someplace either within the Palmetto State or beyond the borders.

You don’t have to be a history buff to feel the presence of the past at this incredible little park with an ancient Santee Indians mound…. but you do have to visit in person. Did you even know it was here? It’s located just off I-95 at exit 102 in the Santee National Wildlife Refuge.

Address: Fort Watson Road, Summerton, SC, 29148
