The New Charleston Lighthouse is one of the more well-known landmarks in South Carolina. The original lighthouse was built in 1767, but was destroyed in the Civil War. It was reconstructed from 1874 to 1876, as the "New" Charleston Lighthouse. Fort Sumter is another famous South Carolina historical site, as the site of the first shots fired in the Civil War. Both the fort itself and the nearby Sumter County Museum, with its live historical enactions and many exhibits, are popular sites for RV rental customers to visit while in South Carolina.
Another museum to include in your plans for your RV rental vacation is the Discovery Center in Region 3 of South Carolina's Heritage Corridor. Its focus is on some of the failed campaigns of the Union Army under General Sherman, as well as several interactive displays. If you have an appreciation for the artistic, stop in at the Spartanburg County Museum of Art, featuring art from both local and national artists, past and present.
