This Beautiful 295-Acre Botanical Garden In South Carolina Is A Sight To Be Seen

Nestled into the landscape in upstate South Carolina is an urban oasis: the South Carolina Botanical Garden. Its 295 acres are in the heart of Clemson and possibly one of the last great things you can experience in the state – without spending a dime (not even for parking!).
