Visit the Congaree National Park, world renown natural wonder, rich in history and biodiversity the entire family can enjoy year around for FREE! Half an hour drive from Columbia, the swamp park is the world’s tallest deciduous forest and the country’s largest and few remaining old-growth floodplain forests. It features splendid cathedral like canopies, an amazing wildlife and miles of hiking, canoeing, camping and fishing along the mysterious Congaree river.
Well that’s a family friendly travel destination worth shouting about!
Read more about it on my previous Congaree National Park family visit post.
Happy outdoor family vacationing in beautiful South Carolina!
