Congaree National Park

Congaree National Park is located near central South Carolina, protecting a fragile swamp region that’s home to numerous champion trees. Boardwalks and trails bring hikers through the remarkable swamps and wetlands, providing an opportunity to see the aforementioned trees, as well as native wildlife to the area. A particular highlight of the park is each May when the native fireflies come out and blink synchronously as the day turns to night.
