Clemson, SC - Clemson University
Home to the Clemson Tigers, Clemson is a hidden gem in South Carolina. It's located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and therefore nature is a big thing to see here. In addition to seeing the cool campus and watching a top-ranked football team, you can tour the South Carolina Botanical Gardens or go chasing waterfalls. There are over 30 waterfalls in the Clemson area, all of which are even better this time of year.
