2Congaree National Park. South Carolina

The highlight here is the large number of old, bottomland hardwood trees. In 1983 this park was given UNESCO biosphere reserve status for the park’s biodiversity” and is also known for its rich cultural heritage. Here you can go hiking or even enjoy a guided tour on the popular Cedar Creek canoe trail.  

The best time to visit is fall or spring. The park is two hours from Charleston so a weekend trip is easy to do. If you do decide to camp there be sure to reserve a spot at one of their drive-in campgrounds.
