summer swamp

We revisited Cypress Gardens swamp with friends this week and I have to recommend it for several reasons: It's a great spot to take summer guests so they can really appreciate a southern swamp, it's teaming with wildlife and natural beauty, it's one of the most reasonable day trips from Charleston ( 45 minutes from Mt. Pleasant, $10 adult, $5 child which includes the use of row boats), plus the fact it's a great workout rowing those boats through the lily pads. There's just something about boats... kids LOVE them. We advise going early to beat the heat and full sun. Don't forget to visit the amazing butterfly house! Details at the bottom of this post. Check back here next week for education extensions to use before you go.
