Discover the South
By the editors of Kaboose.com, with Margaret Soria
South Carolina is a state full of adventure, exploration, and fun. Here you can take a stroll through America’s oldest landscaped garden, play at one of more than 330 gold courses, scour beaches for seashells, or kayak through marshlands. Mom and dad will be intrigued by the historical culture, art, and folklore, while the children will love the sweet treats of the south.
It's something everyone dreams of for their family. A cozy cabin tucked away in the deep forest, far away from the pressures of everyday life. A home away from home with all the modern amenities situated in that perfect spot. It's "Vacation Central," a base of operations that allows your family to get out and explore while still having a peaceful and comfortable place to refresh and regroup for the next day's adventures. It is with this concept in mind that the cabins at South Carolina's state parks and mountains are maintained and operated.
More than 80,000 acres - from the edges of the Blue Ridge and the shores of cool Midlands lakes, to tidal creeks and sand dunes of the Atlantic - protect and preserve some of South Carolina's most fascinating natural and cultural resources
