Congaree Bluegrass Festival The Congaree Bluegrass Festival is held on the first Saturday in October at Granby Gardens Park. It features bluegrass performances, tours of the Cayce Historical Museum, a popular festival food, youth-oriented activities and a children's play area.
It played an important role in the Revolutionary war as more battles and skirmishes were fought in here than any other state.
But in addition to its rich history, it's also home to gorgeous beaches and parks and is packed with fin for the whole family.
Known primarily for its magnificent hardwoods and soaring pines, an astonishing biodiversity exists in Congaree National Park.
As the largest intact expanse of old growth bottomland hardwood forest remaining in the southeastern United States, the park's floodplain forest features one of the highest canopies in the world and some of the tallest trees in the eastern United States.
Fort Sumter Fort Sumter will forever hold a place of importance in American history as the launch point for the Civil War, the bloodiest and most divisive conflict in our nation's history.
A visit to Fort Sumter evokes a range of emotions as you reflect upon the noble ideals, political turmoil, sacrifice and suffering it represents.
