Places To Visit in South Carolina

There comes a time when you have visited every museum there is to see, the zoos, the beaches and you want to see something that you may not have come across before. You have that deep hankering for the unique, the odd, the ‘never done before’. If this sounds like you, especially since summer is barrelling down on you at the speed of an out of control freight train with broken brakes, then maybe you will find attractions right here in South Carolina.

Sometimes the busy hustle and bustle of the big city starts to take a toll on you and you begin to imagine what it would be like to spend a few days of relaxing and unwinding while you leave your worries behind. Going on a sweet little vacation will surely do you wonders and one of the best places to visit is the charming, idyllic and laid back city of Charleston, South Carolina.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the history and grandeur of this port city, which helped shape the United States. Grand homes and architecturally astounding churches line the charming streets in Charleston’s Historic District, while plantations give a sense of the south in yesteryear.
During a stay in Charleston, visitors can tour the stronghold of Fort Sumter and the immense deck of the USS Yorktown.

The South Carolina Aquarium, another big state attraction, is also located in this lovely coastal city. There are a lot of great things about South Carolina, but few are as remarkable as the collection of outdoor parks, green ways, recreational venues, trail systems, gardens, community centers, bike paths and just plain beautiful places set aside for public’s use all year round.

The South Carolina State Museum is the state’s largest museum, with four floors covering the areas of natural history, science and technology, art, and cultural, as they relate to South Carolina. The museum features educational hands-on exhibits, a science theatre, a planetarium, and changing exhibits. People of all ages will find this museum intriguing.

Explore the night sky during public shows at the Dupont Planetarium in Aiken. While the planetarium’s main focus is astronomy, other shows may take watchers into wild weather events or the molecules of a living cell. The planetarium encourages visitors to make reservations.
The central city of Columbia is the state capital, but historic Charleston is the center of charming antebellum streets and plantations with moss-covered ancient oaks. The state is also known as a premier golf destination in the United States.
