There are plenty of beautiful SC waterways to explore, and the Olde English District (Chester, Chesterfield, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Union + York Counties) is home to a lot of them.

The summer season is almost here, Greenville. That means sunny days filled with outdoor activities are ahead.

Here are a few of our fave ways to hit the water so you can plan the perfect trip to the Olde English District:

  • Paddle past the blooming Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies at Landsford Canal in June.
  • Kayak + canoe at state parks like Cheraw State Park in Chesterfield County and Goodale State Park in Kershaw County.
  • Check out the larger bodies of water in the region, including Lake Wateree, Lake Wylie, and Lake Monticello for water sports.*
