This Short Hike In South Carolina Leads To The Dreamiest Swimming Hole

Cooling off on a warm day in the Palmetto State isn’t always easy to accomplish, unless you elect to stay indoors with the air conditioner turned way down. However, there are places to get outside and play in the sun while still cooling off, including a dreamy swimming hole located a mere one-tenth of a mile from the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Byway.
