Fodor's Expert Review Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary

Walterboro Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge
Free Fodor's Choice

Boardwalks and hiking, biking, and canoe trails weave through this lovely 600-acre park lorded over by ancient cypress and tupelo trees. One of the paths traces the colonial-era Charleston-to-Savannah Stagecoach Road, where you can still see the cypress remnants of historic bridges. It's a Southern swamp that forms the headwaters of the ACE Basin's Ashepoo River, so douse yourself with insect repellent and be on alert for reptiles.

The complementary indoor Walterboro Wildlife Center, at 100 S. Jeffries Boulevard, features naturalist-guided live animal and nature-based exhibits as well as an amphitheater that hosts outdoor concerts during summer.
