Yesterday, Veronica and I spent a good part of the day at Cypress Gardens. It is my second “Life in the Lowcountry” entry and I hope as this section grows, you will take advantage of some of the suggested places to visit and experience them for yourselves.
Located near Charleston, in Moncks Corner, Cypress Gardens offers visitors the rare experience of being one with nature as they explore the swamp on flat bottom boats or wander on meandering trails. Visit the Butterfly House, Aquarium, Reptile Center, Crocodile Isle & Aviary. See cypress knees and mirrored reflections of trees. Experience one of the world’s most fascinating natural environments, and a place the whole family will enjoy! Veronica is a nature enthusiast and loves animals so for this 13 year old, the day was fun (even WITH mom and her camera!)
There are demonstrations that go on with the animlas at different times of the day and you can take a guided tour of the swamps or just take your own boat out and enjoy the scenery!
I have also photographed a few weddings here and done a trash the dress session. It is amazing the things you can do here and what you will see. There are about 4.5 miles of walking paths, a wedding garden, nature trails and 80 acres of open swamp.
March and April are the best times to come to see “Spring In Bloom”
I would love to know if you have been there or after checking this out and visiting their website if you are going to go!
