South Carolina is called “The Palmetto State”. We had no idea what a palmetto is but now we know that it is a small palm tree. On South Carolina’s website it says it´s the perfect state for tourism. It might be in the summer. Unfortunately, right now it´s only 8 degrees Celsius, but it can be as warm as 18 degrees here in March. South Carolina has a humid subtropical climate and occasionally South Carolina is affected by hurricanes, but fortunately it isn´t hurricane season right now.
At first we thought S.C would be incredibly boring, and we were kind of right. The capital of South Carolina is Columbus, but we stopped in Charleston, a pretty small city right next to the beach.
Charleston is the second largest city in the state, it was created in 1901. There hasn´t really been happening anything here since. The city is quite nice though, with lots of old houses and the beach. I just wish that it was summer so we could swim in the ocean.
Next stop is Georgia, we hope that there´s more to do there.
