The South's Best Parks

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 18, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCDo you live in an apartment in Beaufort, SC? If so, don’t miss these beautiful, budget-friendly escapes in our own backyard. These are some of the best State Parks in the South according to Southern Living Magazine.

Huntington Island State Park

Huntington Island, SC

If you’ve been searching for a perfectly picturesque beach—5 miles of it—Hunting Island State Park won’t disappoint. It has even been immortalized in movies like Forrest Gump and G.I. Jane. Take in the full view of the ocean, beach, and marshland by climbing to the top of the Hunting Island Lighthouse; lucky visitors might even snag a reservation at the lighthouse cabin. The island is named for the hunting done here in years past, and today you can still see deer and waterfowl regularly. The endangered loggerhead turtle nests here as well. If you’d like to catch some fresh seafood for dinner, try crabbing or fishing off the pier on Fripp Inlet. Enjoy a cool Atlantic breeze as you swim, boat, or kayak. Bonus: pirate stories. Hunting Island and nearby Beaufort were supposedly layovers for Blackbeard and his “associates.”

Amicalola Falls State Park

Dawsonville, GA

Many a grand adventure has begun under the stone archway at Amicalola Falls State Park as hikers set off onto the legendary 2,190-mile Appalachian Trail. Watching those backpackers begin their treks is one of the highlights of visiting the park. If you’re feeling more inspired by a bit of weekend adventure, Amicalola has plenty to offer. Screaming Eagle Aerial Adventures at Amicalola Falls State Park and Lodge features the Zip Line Canopy Tour and suspension bridges for a day of sightseeing and fun, and the GPS Scavenger Hunt allows families to hike while searching for secret spots designed to help kids learn about nature (there’s even a prize at the end). The park’s 3-D Archery course, designed for both amateurs and professionals, teaches basic bow-and-arrow skills and allows students to “hunt” for bears, deer, and more in a virtual course. Don’t miss the view at Amicalola Falls itself. With a 729-foot drop, it’s the highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River and can be reached by trail, stairway, or car.

Cloudland Canyon State Park

Rising Fawn, GA

On the edge of Lookout Mountain sits Cloudland Canyon State Park, home to waterfalls, sandstone cliffs, caves, and creeks just waiting to be explored. This gorgeous spot on the Cumberland Plateau has miles of wonderful trails. Take a short stroll on Overlook Trail, or try the more challenging Waterfalls Trail. Hiking isn’t the only adventure Cloudland Canyon has to offer. Over 30 miles of mountain biking trails and 16 miles of horseback riding trails plus an 18-hole disc golf course and a fishing pond draw hobbyists of all types. Or share a special group experience by booking a cave tour through G3 Adventures. Their family-friendly excursions here and at nearby Pigeon Mountain might get you a little wet and muddy, but they’re experiences you won’t forget. Pick an unusual lodging option (and skip the DIY tent setup) by staying in one of the park’s 10 yurts, circular domed tents that are kept pitched and ready for up to six people.

Hanging Rock State Park

Danbury, NC

Visit the beautiful Sauratown Mountains, called “the mountains away from the mountains” because they’re so close to the Blue Ridge Range but aren’t part of it. This park, created in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), is a lovely place to spend an afternoon. Hiking trails overlook mountains, waterfalls, and a cave. Admire the serenely cascading streams, and take a dip in the pools below. Rent a rowboat or canoe on the 12-acre lake to angle for catfish and bass, or spend the day in a kayak on the Dan River. Rock climbers can take advantage of almost 2 miles of 400-foot-tall cliffs at Moore’s Wall and Cook’s Wall, while mountain bikers will love riding along the rock ledges and streams.


Beaufort, South Carolina: A Happy Seaside Town

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 02, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCIndeed, Coastal Living magazine proclaimed Beaufort the nation's Happiest Seaside Town earlier this year, citing "Lowcountry friendliness and urban refinement … antebellum architecture, exquisite local cuisine, and rich African-American heritage."

In nominating towns, editors considered qualities such as rankings in the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, as well as the number of sunny days, beach health, walkability and intangibles such as "coastal vibe."

Beaufort possesses all those attributes, though strictly speaking, it isn't seaside. It lies on Port Royal Sound and the banks of the brackish Beaufort River. Open water is 16 miles east of the historic town center, where Hunting Island State Park sports 3 miles of pristine beachfront, acres of woodland and a historic lighthouse.

Set in the heart of South Carolina's Sea Islands, Beaufort has a walkable downtown that boasts art galleries, bookstores and antiques shops. Restaurants serve fresh-off-the-boat seafood and classic Lowcountry cuisine such as thick, spicy gumbos and just-picked collard greens. And a sprawling waterfront park doubles as a stage for live concerts.

History here is as palpable as a Lowcountry breeze blowing through the salt marshes. Roots run deep in downtown Beaufort, designated a National Historic Landmark, as well as on nearby St. Helena Island, home to a rich Gullah heritage nurtured by slave descendents.


The Spanish arrived in the early 1500s but failed to make a go of it. The French later met a similar fate. In 1711, the British established the first successful settlement, despite attacks from Yemasee Indians. (The town's oldest house, said to date to 1717, still has holes that supposedly were designed as rifle slots for defense against Indian attacks.)

But for all this layered history, it's the Civil War — or, "the recent unpleasantness," as McGowan calls it — that still resonates with many.

Beaufort was the first — and last — Confederate town occupied by Union troops during the war. They arrived in 1861, causing 1,400 residents — among them, wealthy owners of cotton plantations on nearby St. Helena Island — to flee. Ironically, the Northerners' long occupation helped ensure Beaufort's preservation. Some homes were confiscated and converted into Union hospitals. Of 7,500 casualties buried in the town's National Cemetery, just 117 are Confederates.

Across the Beaufort River on St. Helena Island, 55 cotton plantations were home to 10,000 enslaved Africans who became classified as "contraband" after Union troops arrived in Beaufort. Because they were largely left to themselves after — and even before — the owners fled, their language, a Creole English dialect called Gullah, survived, along with many of their West African tribal rituals.

Penn Center, one of the first schools for former slaves, was established in 1862. Today, the site is a 50-acre National Historic Landmark District with 19 original buildings. Its museum offers a fascinating view into the island's Gullah culture.

The spot also figures into civil rights history as a place where early movement leaders gathered, and where Martin Luther King Jr. wrote part of his "I Have a Dream" speech.


Hollywood discovered Beaufort with the filming of The Great Santini, released in 1979. It was based on the novel by longtime resident Pat Conroy, who's still a fixture around town. Enough notable films — The Big Chill and Forrest Gump, among others — followed, to spark the creation of drive-by tours of on-location sites.

Other sorts of artists predate the movie makers' arrivals. Beaufort has been an art mecca since the late 1800s, notes J.W. Roane, executive director of the local arts council.

But is it a happy arts town?

It's special. People come to Beaufort because it's beautiful. And yes, you could say it's the happiest seaside place.
