Around Charleston: Cypress Gardens
Above are lovely shots of the swamp land at Cypress Gardens. It's a lovely place where you can take a glass-bottomed boat tour of the swamp or trek on the nature trail around the swamp. If you're lucky, you might even see an alligator! In addition to the swamps, the gardens also has a reptile house and butterfly house to enjoy. The last time I visited was on a field trip with kindergartners last year, so most of my pictures contained kids (hence the limited supply of good shots).
Interesting tidbit about Cypress Gardens? It has been featured in several movies, including The Patriot, The Notebook, and North and South.
