If you don't think you'll be able to scrape up the funds for space exploration in this lifetime, Lake Waccamaw State Park can act as a close second. Limestone bluffs color the waters of these ponds to create what has been hailed as one of the most unique bodies of water in the world. Keep an eye out for extremely rare plants and endangered species, then practice some mindful meditation amongst the sandy tree-lined shores. With such a rarity under your nose, it may just feel like you're out of this world.

BUGS. Stayed on a June 2015 motorcycle camping trip. If camping down by the water during the summer, bring clothes that cover every square inch of your body including a hat and head net. I had to keep all gear on (including helmet) in order to set up camp.

Sunset on the lake"No Swimming" sign.Leaving early in the morning to beat the flies.Road between visitor center and campsites.
