Explore the Outdoors in South Carolina
What made me smile from the moment I started to land in South Carolina was the sheer amount of expansive green I could see below me. There have been very few states I have visited that can rival that of the English countryside, but South Carolina is one. I was lucky to visit numerous state parks, gardens and golf courses on my trip, as well as beautiful beaches, marshes and historic homes and buildings. I also got to eat some delicious food from some of the top fine-dining restaurants and some great local favourites such as shrimp and grits and boiled peanuts.
