BUBBLING UP
One of only a few places in
North America where you’ll
find synchronous fireflies,
Congaree National Park hosts
the magical luminous beetles
for the two to three weeks
between May and June when the
fireflies perform their rhythmic
symphony of light as part of an
annual mating ritual.
Mother Nature’s dazzling
display of fall color peaks in
November in any of the dozen
state parks along scenic Highway
11. Whether you climb to the
top of Table Rock’s famed
granite dome or stroll around
Lake Placid in Paris Mountain,
you’ll be treated to spectacular
views of fall foliage.
Experience a breathtaking
botanical spectacle when the
world’s largest population of
rare Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies
blanket the Catawba River in a
showy display of beautiful white
blooms. The only place to catch
the aquatic plant show each May
and June is at Landsford Canal
State Park.
More than 80 years after the
Civilian Conservation Corps
drilled artesian wells in two
South Carolina state parks,
the cold, clear water from
the aquifer continues to flow
year-round. Visitors are
welcome to drink from three
wells in Aiken State Park and
four in Lee State Park.
