South Carolina

Along with many of its historical connections, South Carolina also offers visitors coastal scenery at renowned South Carolina beaches such as Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach, and summer vacation fun at Cypress Gardens in Charleston, and the Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden in Columbia.

Military history and Civil War buffs will want to head straight to the Charleston area for tours of historic Fort Sumter as well as Patriot's Point to board the USS Yorktown and other retired naval ships currently stationed there today.
