13 Fun Adventures You Can Have At South Carolina’s Sesquicentennial State Park

Adventures abound in South Carolina all the way from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean. And while the mountains and the coast are both epic places to explore, there are endless ways to have fun in the other areas of the Palmetto State, too. Sesquicentennial State Park, for example, is centrally located just 11 miles from the state capital and makes a great day trip destination from anywhere in the state. It’s also one of the most underrated state parks in the system.
