Riverbanks Zoo & Garden

Riverbanks is home to more than 2,000 magnificent and fascinating animals and one of the nation's most beautiful and inspiring botanical gardens. The lush 170-acre site features dynamic natural habitat exhibits, scenic river views, spectacular valley overlooks and significant historic landmarks. For more than 30 years, Riverbanks has provided individuals, families and groups with a common place to connect with and learn about the world's wildlife and wild places. Twice awarded the Governor's Cup for South Carolina's Most Outstanding Tourist Attraction, Riverbanks is the premier family choice for education and recreation in the Southeast. Riverbanks Zoo and Garden not only serves to protect rare and endangered wildlife and wild places, but also is caretaker to a number of Civil War era historic sites located within the Zoo on both sides of the river including: Saluda Factory Interpretive Center, Covered Bridge Abutments, Camp Sorghum, Saluda Factory Historic District and Sherman's Rock.
