One of the original 13 colonies, South Carolina is rich in history, heritage, culture, natural beauty and recreation. Visitors can tour relics from battles of both the Revolutionary and Civil wars, including cannon-fire scars on the state capitol dating back to 1865. European settlers arrived at Charles Towne Landing some 350 years ago, and visitors today can still explore the site, replete with a historic museum and reproduced 17th-century cargo vessel.
