Florida Trip Day 6: South Carolina Lowcountry Meanderings

A day of road tripping the South Carolina Lowcountry region…

First stop: Summerville, SC, the official birthplace of Sweet Tea.

What is interesting to note is that we could not find a restaurant in Summerville that claimed the best sweet tea — in fact, the lady at the visitor center recommended McDonald’s as having really good sweet tea. Sold!

We took in Summerville’s Walking Tour of Homes and Flowers and enjoyed more great architecture like this Victorian in the Queen Anne style. The current family has occupied this house for almost 100 years.

From Summerville, we visited the Frampton Plantation. This farmhouse was built in 1868.

Our last stop was to Hilton Head Island. We drove around checking out the expensive vacation homes and ended up at this public beach.

Definitely a great place for families to play and enjoy nature! We were pretty happy that the ocean breeze cooled us down from all the sticky heat.
