The Hidden Gem In South Carolina That Makes For An Undeniably Perfect Day Trip

With so much to see and do in the Palmetto State it can be understandably difficult to decide where to take the family for a memorable experience. We’ve suggested other day trips in the past, like adventures you can have by train and a quaint beach town that’s perfect for summertime fun. But this day trip will help you discover a hidden gem that’s centrally located in Columbia. As an added bonus, it’s mostly indoors, so it won’t matter if you head here in the heat of the summer or the dead of winter. Check out all it has to offer and then plan your adventure for sometime this year.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
