Experience Southern Charm

Southern Charm. Great Dining. History. Antiques. Shooting Clays. Hospitality. Museums. Horses. Parks. Motor Sports. The oldest inland city in the state. Camden is rich with historic homes and small businesses, making it a sightseeing haven. The mild climate and natural beauty of Camden lend itself to outdoor activities. From Bloomsbury you can explore local parks, Goodall State Park (15 minutes) and Congaree National Park (60 minutes) or just walk downtown to take in a movie, enjoy a margarita or a monthly outdoor concert. Full of dining and cultural opportunities, Camden features such a wide variety of places to play. You just cannot experience Camden in a short period, most visitors want to stay for two or three days…some just never want to leave. If you stay a little longer, you might want to visit other places just a short distance away: Columbia or Florence, SC; Shaw Air Force Base or Ft Jackson; and a myriad of other small towns surrounding us.
