Orangeburg, South Carolina Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

An Indian trader named George Sterling first settled Orangeburg in 1704. In 1735, 200 German, Swiss and Dutch established a community here, near the banks of the North Edisto River. Orangeburg profited from its location, as the river served as an important means by which lumber and agricultural products could reach the port of Charleston.

Although Orangeburg remains a relatively small and undeveloped town of about 13,000 residents, it plays a vital role in serving nearby rural communities. Orangeburg's parks and gardens draw the most visitors to this otherwise sleepy town. In fact, if you are a lover of gardens, Orangeburg is your sanctuary.

The South Carolina Festival of Roses is a celebration of the rose blooming season that takes place during the last full weekend of April. The festival has been listed as a "Top Twenty Tourism Event in the Southeast." More than just a show of roses, the festival also offers varied entertainment and activities that the entire family will enjoy. The 150-acre Edisto Memorial Gardens, located just four blocks from downtown, is home to the festival. Horne Wetlands Park is located within the gardens. A mile long walkway meanders through the park, and allows visitors to truly explore untouched beauty.

If you are looking for a once in a lifetime event, attend the Grand American Coon Hunt. Held in January of every year, the event attracts about 25,000 spectators, and has also been named as a "Top Twenty Tourism Event in the Southeast."

Fishing, hiking, kayaking and canoeing are popular pastimes in Orangeburg due to its location near the Edisto River (the longest black water river in the world.) Shooting preserves and state managed lands offer additional outlets for hunting and fishing.

Located directly south of Columbia, and northwest of Charleston, off Interstate 26.
