We happened to be in Orangeburg and googled "Christmas lights in Orangeburg" and found this. It took us around 10 minutes to drive through. There was an option to get out and walk but we didn't take it. Looks neat though!

More rose bushes than my wife and I expected. Even though it was getting to be the end of the rose season, there still were plenty of bushes in bloom. There also are some nice walking paths.

While August is not the best time we enjoyed our visit. The lake and fountains are very pleasant. For those who know roses there are many rare varieties

Saw the extensive rose garden, the waterwheel and the Edisto River. Good for spending any hour or so looking around. There is also a big fountain. Plentiful parking.
