The Great Outdoors
You won't find mountains (or even any fairly good hills) in this neck of the woods, so hikers will have to make do with easy, relatively flat trails, but the scenery will more than make up for it. Take your Hephzibah RV rental for a spin to take in the scenery and possibly even turn it into a photography hunt.
Three destinations near Hephzibah that are worth checking out are Wildwood Park, Fort Gordon Recreation Area, and Mistletoe State Park. Fort Gordon has a playground for kids, good hiking trails and is right on the lake for you to go swimming. Wildwood Park is a good place to go fishing or boating; it has picnic areas and a disc golf course. Mistletoe is a 1,900-acre park, with activities such as boating, fishing, mountain biking, geocaching, hiking (15.5 miles of trails), swimming and bird watching. Take in a refreshing swim, shower off and change clothes in your RV rental near Hephzibah and you are ready for whatever is coming next.
There is one golf course just a few miles from Hephzibah, and it boasts rolling fairways with eight lakes to make the game just a little more challenging. This is a private course but the public is welcome to book a tee time; it is also a repeated venue for Master's competitions. Play here and you will be playing with the best in the world (or at least giving their ghosts a run for their money). Finish your round with a nice homemade lunch in your Hephzibah travel trailer rental, enjoyed under the RV's awning while watching other golfers wander by.
There are few to no RV parks or resorts in Hephzibah, but a number of parks are within reasonable distance.

Boss's RV Park, also near Wren, has full hookups (water, electricity/50 amp and sewer), wi-fi, pull-through, and big rig access, and allows pets. The park has been around for a while. The sites are grass and leveling your RV should be relatively simple and easy.
Exploring The City
When it comes time for dinner, Hephzibah has a good selection of cuisines to choose from. There are several Chinese restaurants, which are always people pleasers; however, if you want to try something Asian but slightly different, there is at least one Korean restaurant. Korean food is delicious and healthy, and there are a variety of menu items available. Families with young children should scope out a good family restaurant; there are at least two, both of which focus on breakfast but have lunch and dinner entrees as well (and who doesn't like a nice, rare T-Bone steak with their scrambled eggs?).
Seafood lovers will appreciate that there are a few restaurants to start with, offering up chicken and seafood meals. One of these offers your choice of Chicago style (fried) or Cajun grilled, while the other goes all in on its chicken wings, which are a local favorite. One of the restaurants even serves hard boiled eggs straight from their own private farm during Easter. Another local restaurant specializes in crab, which can be messy but delicious (this could be a good way to let the kids blow off some steam when the rules are starting to wear thin). There are pub restaurants that offer great menus, beer, and sports, in no particular order.
Whatever your choice, dine in or, better yet, grab some takeout and head back to your camper rental in Hephzibah, where you can make use of the picnic tables or relax in your personal camping chairs to enjoy a perfect meal under a perfect starlit night sky.
