If you're traveling with kids (or are like me and love animals) Lawton Stables is a great place to visit. It provides lessons for those daring enough to see how intense a show barn really is, or you can try the more relaxed route by taking a trail ride around the grounds. (The trail ride is more suited for beginners or first-time riders and could leave more experienced riders a little sleepy-eyed.)
Lawton also has a petting zoo for kids (and me because I'm still five at heart) that houses a doe and an array of other farm animals.
Tip: It's located in Sea Pines, so come prepared for a $5 entrance fee.
