This Waterfall Staircase At Lake Crawford Is Among The Most Unique In All Of South Carolina
One of the best things about South Carolina’s perfect size is that it only takes a few hours to get from one border to the opposite border. This means that day trips to our farthest reaching state parks like Kings Mountain, which is only a stone’s throw from the North Carolina border, are entirely possible no matter where you live in the Palmetto State. If you love chasing waterfalls as much as you love chasing history, then a visit to this state park and its block hand-laid stair-step waterfall is in order.
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/
