Four Places to Visit this Spring



We’re sharing four of our favorite places to visit in the springtime. Scroll on to explore, then plan your next weekend adventure.

 

  • Angel Oak Tree Park (John’s Island, Charleston, SC) – because there’s something awesome about having a live oak completely envelop you in its branches.

  • Bulls Island (Awendaw, SC) – because it’s like visiting the Everglades without leaving the state. Bulls Island is home to the second largest population of American Alligators after the Everglades.

  • Donnelley Wildlife Management Area (Green Pond, SC) – because the ACE Basin is wild! The Boynton Nature Trail takes you on a 2.2-mile loop through forests and rice fields, where you can view various waterfowl and will probably see a few alligators on the way.

  • Audubon’s Francis Beidler Forest (Harleyville, SC) – because you should take the time to stop, look and listen. Beidler Forest is the world’s largest virgin cypress-tupelo swamp forest, a pristine ecosystem, that is the home to countless wildlife.
