Road Trip – Congaree National Park

After leaving Florida, we spent the night just outside the Okefenokee Swamp. The next day we drove through Georgia, along I-95. We stopped in Savannah for lunch, visiting just one of the historic squares to stretch our legs and let the kids play a little. Then we headed into South Carolina to Congaree National Park.

Congaree may not be the biggest or most famous national park, but it sure was pretty. We got there a little before the visitor center closed. We were able to watch a short video about the park and the wildlife there. Then we went on the boardwalk loop hike. It was pretty nice and not too long. It was a Wednesday afternoon, and we were the only people there (aside from the ranger).

I forgot my camera in the car, so I only have phone photos, not the greatest quality.

We could only stay a little while, and didn’t have the equipment to camp or kayak, so this was a very nice way to see some of the park. If you have the chance to go, I recommend it.
