Not enough water time for the day?

Head over to Lake Murray, where this tourist attraction will cater to all your families boating and fishing desires. From Pontoon rentals, sight-seeing boats tours, to water sports such as jet skiing. To even a trip to Sandy Beach of Bundrick Island, to embark on a hiking adventure, or sunbath on the shore. 


Over in the Vista, Blue Marlin provides you fine dining for your seafood favorites! Chow down on the BLT Salad which is best known to be their signature. Add the Charleston crab cake, grilled teriyaki salmon, or fried large gulf shrimp to your plate. Along with a key lime pie for dessert to keep your taste buds alive and satisfied. 

If it's BBQ you're craving, Big T Bar-B-Que has mouthwatering pulled pork, served with a mustard-based sauce. Top it off with dessert! We recommend a slice of the red velvet cake. 


On Sunday, join Palmetto Concert Band on Sunday, May 28th, 2023, for their annual symphony held at Koger Center for the Arts. Music starts 4pm and is opened to the public, at no cost. This ensemble includes both semi and professional musicians from South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. Many musicians are alumni of the University of South Carolina School of Music, who are ready to rock your eardrums for the evening.  


At Memorial Park on Hampton Street, spend the day honoring our fallen soldiers by visiting monuments to the USS Columbia Warship, World War II, the China-Burma-India Theatre Veterans of World War II, South Carolina natives involved in the Pearl Harbor attack, the State Vietnam War Veterans, the Holocaust, and the Korean War, to only name a few.
