Watch Up To 11 Different Bat Species Emerge From Hiding In South Carolina

If you’re like most people, then even the mere thought of unexpectedly encountering a bat, say in your barn or garage, is an upending prospect almost guaranteed to send a shiver up your spine. For some reason, bats are downright spooky. But setting out to purposely wait for them to emerge from their daytime roost as the sun goes down is entirely different. You know you’ll see bats and that knowledge, somehow, makes it not only alright, but also a bit of a thrill.

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:
