GREAT SWAMP SANCTUARY
Walterboro offers visitors the ultimate Lowcountry experience, combining history, culture, recreation and education in a singularly southern lowlands setting. Just three minutes from I-95, the Great Swamp Sanctuary offers a completed network of boardwalks, hiking, biking and canoe trails to provide a perfect vantage point for observing the diversity of wildlife that inhabits the black water bottomland. The most historically significant of these paths follows the Colonial-era Charleston-to-Savannah Stagecoach Road still bearing the cypress remnants of long-fallen bridges.
