Entertainment & Activities

Founded in 1979, The Nick’s programming is comprised of a mix of first run independent films, special curated series, and one-off screenings of films of relevance to our community. As big believers in creating more engaging film-going experiences, the Nickelodeon often provides opportunities for conversation before and after screenings, pulling together experts and community members as speakers and respondents. We don't go to regular movie theaters anymore, The Nick is where it's at if you want to enjoy a boutique movie going experience with your favorite beer or wine, popcorn and snacks. Also within walking distance from our home.

Astonishing biodiversity exists in Congaree National Park, the largest intact expanse of old growth bottomland hardwood forest remaining in the southeastern United States. Waters from the Congaree and Wateree Rivers sweep through the floodplain, carrying nutrients and sediments that nourish and rejuvenate this ecosystem and support the growth of national and state champion trees.
