Constructed in 1848, Indian Field Methodist Campground, situated just north of Saint George, is a large camp meeting site that was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1973. Renovated in 1970, this Methodist campground features an open-air pavilion made of wood, surrounded by 99 cabins two stories high. The inspiration for Indian Field Methodist Campground's design is said to have come from several mentions in the Book of Leviticus.
Located near Givhans State Park along the historic Edisto River where tupelo trees grow, this family-owned bee farm aims to educate visitors on the importance of honey bees and the honey they produce. In addition to tours of the farm and bee production, the park offers a petting zoo for children with monkeys, lemurs, lamas and wallabies. A gift shop also features varying sizes of honey and beeswax figures and candles, lip balm, hand creams and chocolate-covered honey candy. The Bee City Café offers simple lunch fare that includes hamburgers, cheeseburgers or hot dogs, but visitors are also welcome to bring a picnic. - Natasha Lawrence
