Whether you're a die hard Gamecock fan or you've never heard of the University of South Carolina, the Horseshoe is a must-see when in Columbia, South Carolina. The horseshoe is a piece of gorgeous history that allows you to enjoy nature in the middle of the capital.

Right in the center of the University of South Carolina's campus there is a gorgeous horseshoe. It is one of the most historic pieces of campus. While walking along the horseshoe, you can stumble across college students hurrying to class, people hanging in their hammocks, a photographer capturing special moments or a group of people having a yoga class. It is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. You can bike, run, walk and photograph this area for hours. There's also several places to enjoy a picnic lunch or relax and read a book.

Horseshoe @ USC

Not what I would call much of an adventure, more of sightseeing and learning about some of the first buildings on the campus of University of South Carolina.
