The mountain within the state park yields some of the most amazing views within South Carolina. With many options for explor- ing the beauty of the park, guests can hike to Raven Cliff Falls Trail, a 420-foot mountain cascade, or traverse Rainbow Falls Trail where you can celebrate your achievement by cool- ing off in the mist of the falls. Besides hiking, enjoy bird watching – including the Hawk Watch – geocaching, fishing and more. Enjoy Southern Staples Housed in a renovated old country store, Grits & Groceries in Belton is the gastro-creation of chefs Heidi and Joe Trull. The world-re- nowned restaurant, part of the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor, offers a reg- ular menu with Southern staples such as the Palmetto burger with a big scoop of home- made pimento cheese on top, along with a weekly seasonal menu featuring savory dishes such as pork roast with summer succotash, and chicken and waffles with pepper jelly. And just when you thought your mouth couldn't water any more, Grits & Groceries also offers a daily dessert menu, as well as Sunday brunch to satisfy all of your culinary cravings. Gullah Geechee Heritage With an abundance of year-round activ- ities and local festivals, including the Gullah Festival that celebrates the rich Gullah Geechee heritage of South Carolina Lowcountry, Beaufort and the surrounding Sea Islands have plenty to offer. Rent a bicycle and ride through the town to see the sights, including the many history and art museums. If you want a water expedition, climb aboard Captain Dick's Beaufort River Tour and Dolphin Watch to see playful dolphins and other marine life. You can also experience the local culture on a Beaufort walking tour, with guides who tell colorful tales about the 500- year history of the town. n A B C D E F Charleston ...........................E4 ................... 86 Charlotte ..............................C1 ................... 86 Clemson ..............................A1 ................... 86 Columbia .............................C2 ................... 86 Florence...............................E2 ................... 87 Greenville ............................B1 ................... 87 Hilton Head Island ...............D5 ................... 87 Myrtle Beach .......................
