Weekend visitors ONLY: For information about how to reach the Visitor Center, follow the directions provided in the links below. We hope that the photo above will help you recognize the entrance to one of our parking areas. Pull through the intersection of Pendleton & Bull Streets, into the cul-de-sac behind the Palmetto tree. Should this lot be full, overflow parking is located in a parking garage near the Visitor Center. The entrance to this parking garage is located near the intersection of Pendleton and Pickens Street. To reach this intersection, turn right as you exit the cul-de-sac on to Pendleton St. and travel one block to Pickens St. Turn left on Pickens St and you will see the entrance to the garage on your left. As you enter the garage, look for the sign directing you to visitor meters; however, you do not need to feed these meters on the weekend.
