Cypress Gardens SC


Cypress Gardens SC

Cypress Gardens SC, a 175-acre swamp garden, is located about 30 minutes from downtown Charleston in Moncks Corner. The gardens were originally a freshwater reserve for the nearby rice plantation, Dean Hall. Visitors can enjoy the Butterfly House and observe the different stages of a butterflies life cycle or visit the Swamparium where large tanks feature fish, amphibians and reptiles native to the South Carolina Lowcountry. Visitors can also rent a swamp boat to paddle along a marked trail possibly spotting alligators, birds and turtles or take a stroll along the 3.5 miles of walking trails that loop through the swamp and gardens. These amazing gardens were used in several movies including scenes from the The Notebook, Cold Mountain and The Patriot.
