Yes, it’s where Noah and Allie rowed in “The Notebook”.
Looking for a romantic spot in the city? There’s a hidden gem many people don’t know about. We’re talking about the Cypress Gardens, located just 30 minutes north of Downtown Charleston.
Yes, this is the place where that famous scene of “The Notebook” was filmed.
Note: There are no swans in the swamp, they were just there for the movie.
Head out to the gardens and enjoy picturesque views along 3.5 miles of walking paths that loop through the swamp and gardens. There are different plants and flowers blooming depending on the season, so if you’ve already visited, it’s always worth it to go back on a different month.
Continue with a guided tour through the swamp and your chance to have an Insta worthy photoshoot.
Finally, visit The Butterfly House, a large greenhouse filled with hundreds of flowering plants, butterflies, birds, a pond, an observation beehive, and an arthropod exhibit.
If you fall in love with this place we have good news, you can rent it for weddings and other events!
