Take In Stunning Fall Foliage Views At This U.S. National Park
Congaree National Park in the heart of South Carolina is a relatively unknown but gorgeous spot to take in fall foliage. In 2022, just over 200,000
people visited Congaree.
While it might be lesser known, Congaree National Park boasts the largest old-growth bottomland hardwood forest in the southeast of the country.
At Congaree, you can see cypress trees delicately shedding their rust-colored leaves into the swamps below, or fiery tupelo trees painting streaks of red against the blue skies.
Fall colors peak in late October to early November in Congaree, and at this time, fall temperatures are pleasant. Visitors can expect daytime highs of around 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
The fall months are also an ideal time to go kayaking or canoeing in the park. You can also enjoy some of its many hiking trails or stay at its two frontcountry campgrounds.
