During the tour, a knowledgeable guide leads groups along the picturesque West Columbia Riverwalk while stuffing their minds with facts about the Civil War. Stories of the ill-fated S.S. Columbia, the destroyed Congaree River Bridge, and the tunnels beneath the city that were used to transport gold serve to entrance tourists as they stroll along the Congaree River’s west bank. Tours begin at 9 a.m. on Mondays and Saturdays and 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. See the schedule here, and note that the tour may still bear its original name, Capital’s on Fire. Children younger than 6 are free.<p>
Palmetto Outdoor Center
Palmetto Outdoor Center promotes the preservation of natural rivers and forests. Because awareness is the best way to maintain the environment and cultural heritage, Palmetto spreads knowledge of local gems with river trips and walking tours. These organized tours and vessels for rent allow amateur explorers to discover South Carolina's uncluttered riverbanks while learning about how they can be protected. Civil War walking tours illuminate the history of the region, and canoe and kayak rentals plunge into the tree-lined waterways of the Congaree, which flows through protected national parkland with the continent's largest old-growth floodplain forest.
