Explore Wildlife Refuges along the SC Coast
The SC Coast Houses a Variety of Wildlife
Explore the South Carolina coast – with its wealth of beaches and historic attractions, there’s something to see and do for every member of the family.
The beaches and the history – you might already know all about that, but what you may not know, is South Carolina’s coast is dotted with a bevy of wildlife refuges.
Animal lovers, birders, and traveling families enjoy a wide range of options when it comes to the wildlife refuges in the area.
Visit Beaufort and check out Pritchards Island & Center for Coastal Ecology. South of Beaufort is Hilton Head Island, home of the Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge.
For the families looking for animal exploration in and around Myrtle Beach, don't miss out on Ripley's Aquarium.
Just outside of Charleston, enjoy an afternoon at the Sewee Visitor and Environmental Center. Yielding hands-on experiences for the kids, the Sewee Visitor and Environmental Center features a live Red Wolf education area – learn all about this endangered species.
In North Charleston, make sure to explore the Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. Visit with the kids (or fly solo, if that’s your thing) and check out the Plant Conservatory, the petting zoo, and the wildlife observation tower – there’s also a 45-minute boat tour of the Audubon Swamp Garden.
