South Carolina Off The Beaten Path

  • U.S. Air Force Base, Myrtle Beach, S.C.

    Flacon was the mascot of my son's group. If you remember the song, 'Tie a Yellow Ribbon' You know that a yellow ribbon signifies waiting for a loved one's return. That's about all we could do while our sons, husbands, fathers, uncles and friends were off to war.Thus, the yellow ribbon indicates the hope and prayers for the safe return of Falcon...

  • Hungtinton Beach State Park

    In the middle of the Carolinas' Low Country, in North Litchfield, the Hungtington Beach State Park spans from a beautiful fine-sand beach and the inland marsh. Both saltwater and freshwater host a great number of bird species such as the Blue Heron, Egret and many others. Freshwater ponds also host alligators which are easier to spot during late...

  • Roadside Shopping

    For a real treat when you're driving around South Carolina, try stopping at a roadside shop. The one I visited was between Charleston and Savannah, Georgia. It wasn't in a small town, it was along the road in the middle of nowhere. I'd been seeing signs and when I got to the turn off there were a lot of other cars doing the same thing. When I got...

  • Harbison State Forest

    Harbison State Forest, located just outside of Columbia, South Carolina, has a great selection of biking and hiking trails. I enjoyed walking on and seeing the fall leaves on a chilly November day. This appeared to be more popular for biking, but the rolling hills of the trails made it a good option for hiking as well. According to the website,...

  • Lick Fork Lake Recreation Area

    Lick Fork Lake Recreation Area is one of the prettiest spots you will see in South Carolina's Sumpter National Forest. I've been there dozens of times and have never found it crowded, except once on the 4th of July. The Recreation area centers around a 12 acre man-made lake nestled in the southeastern portion of the Long Cane Ranger District. It...

  • Edisto Island

    Here is another place where time seems to have stopped for many years. It is where the old African-American Gullah culture still survives.

  • Daufuskie Island

    Daufuskie is often interpreted as "the first key". It is the northernmost of the Key islands off the South Carolina/Georgia coast, near Hilton Head Island. While very near the mainland, it is not connected by bridge; most local residents prefer it that way. Here is one place where time seems to have stood still for ages. Very rustic and unspoiled....

  • the countryside...

    SC is full of old back roads and farms. go exploring!!! you'll get lost in the tall pines, the tree-lined roads, and the pretty farms. it's a great way to spend an afternoon, just driving through the countryside... :-)

  • The Peachoid

    This water tower is in Gaffney, SC. If you have ever driven from Charlotte to Atlanta on I-85, then you have seen it. Did you know South Carolina produces more peaches than Georgia? This water tower celebrates SC's peach industry. I think it looks like a big peach butt! :-)

  • I played disc golf in Columbia...

    I played disc golf in Columbia on one of the nicest courses I've ever seen. It's in Earlewood Park on Parkside. Eighteen baskets winding through towering pines and majestic oaks. Elevation comes into play on almost every hole.

    U have to get a state map. DO NOT miss the small country towns. Edgefield, Aiken, Darlington, Mt. Pleasant, Murrells Inlet, Santee, Hampton, McCormick, Newberry, Orangeburg, Beaufort, Camden, and Clemson. U have slave history, Nascar, renovated opera house, bargain outlet shopping, historic black colleges, world reknown steeplechase horse racing,...

    Hampton Park. This is near the Citadel and it is a park where the old races were. Before General Sherman hit the city, there were thousands of horses housed here. Now it is a pleasant park with a lake and near there Charleston Police Dept. boards their horses.
