Duke World of Energy: Learn About What Powers The Upstate

Posted on | No Comments

Do you have a young one with an inquisitive mind? Bring them to the Duke World of Energy where they can learn how the electricity that keeps the lights on at home is generated and brought to local houses and businesses.

Did we mention this exhibit is FREE?

We know our readers love free things to do near Greenville so we visited the Duke World of Energy and we’re bringing you all the information you need to plan your own visit soon!

Free Things to Do in Greenville, SC

Looking for more Free Things to do in the Upstate? Here’s our list of free and low-cost things to do near Greenville, SC!

Duke Energy World of Energy

Located on the southern shore of beautiful Lake Keowee, The Oconee Nuclear Station provides energy to nearly 2 million homes via nuclear power. There is a multitude of steps that go into producing so much energy, and families can learn all about it at the power plant’s educational center.

Inside the Duke World of Energy

The Duke World of Energy is a free hands-on exhibit. Visitors will learn how electricity is generated at the plant and how the surrounding lakes contribute. You’ll start off with a short film, followed by a variety of interactive educational displays about energy production at the plant. The experience takes about 30-45 minutes.

As you enter each exhibit room, the presentation is started by an interactive touchpad. As you move from room to room you will learn about the process the plant uses to create the power that flows into homes. The way the exhibit is set up, in multiple rooms will keep kids from toddler to school-age entertained. About halfway through, you’ll find a huge picture window overlooking the power plant – a perfect photo opportunity. I was surprised to learn that this is the fifth-largest nuclear plant in the country.

Duke Energy World of Energy

The exhibits towards the end seemed to be the stars of the show for my children. My son loved the security display which features half of a car and the mirrored tool they use to check underneath cars entering the facility. The last two rooms – my daughter’s favorite – feature a simulated outdoor space, complete with taxidermy animals and an adjoining room that looks like a home. She loved looking out the window back into the “outdoor” room and waving to us.

The topography map is really neat – you can see the entire Jocassee Gorges, the Foothills Trail, the SC State Parks near there, and Lake Jocassee and Lake Keowee. These kinds of maps are always fascinating!

Topographical map at Duke Energy World of Energy

Nature Trail and More at Duke Energy: World of Energy

After visiting the World of Energy exhibit, head outside to the quarter-mile nature trail by the lake. You’ll find a covered picnic shelter, a fishing pier, and even a butterfly garden that’s open during the warmer months. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of dining options nearby, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead and bring a picnic.

We sat on the dock to eat lunch and finish our homeschool work and it was very relaxing. There’s a path that winds its way down to a small beach as well where you can hang out and enjoy the beautiful view. Stay off the helipad though, as the signs say!

You can also fish on the pier if you like. This is such a great way to spend a leisurely afternoon and a fun field trip. The view is breathtaking, and you just might learn something while you’re there.

Dock at Duke Energy World of Energy

FREE Special Events at Duke World of Energy

Don’t forget to check the Duke Energy website for events. In the past, The World of Energy has hosted several community events, including a National Hunting, an Orchid event (currently scheduled for February 15-17, 2024), a Fishing Day event, and a home school day.

Finding Farm-to-Table Restaurants In The Upstate

While chain and fast-food restaurants offer convenience and prices that can be hard to beat, an increasing number of families have an interest in enjoying locally-grown foods. The reasons for doing so are many.

  • It supports local farms.
  • Food is farmed at its peak and has a shorter travel time from farm to table, ensuring freshness of ingredients.
  • It can also be fun to eat foods that are grown seasonally and reveal a chef’s creative flair.

The popularity of local farmers markets tells us that support for local farms is here to stay and an increasing number of Upstate restaurants understand the appeal. In turn, the number of restaurants that celebrate the farm-to-table ethos continues to increase in the Upstate.

So, if you’re curious to see which to choose first, we have a list of places for you!

Don’t get me started about the fries & chicken sandwich at GB&D! They’re both crispy & taste fresh. Well, actually, everything is fresh. Their noodles are handmade & they serve local beef!

Fork and Plough

1629 E. North Street, Greenville, 29607 | 864.609.4249
Located in the historic Overbrook neighborhood, Fork and Plough is what happens when two farmers and a chef collaborate.

Just last week, I nabbed a Shepherd’s Pie, a few slices of sweet potato cake, and a pack of adult beverages to go–all of which were delicious!

The Kennedy is in downtown Spartanburg, about 30 minutes from Greenville.

The Lazy Goat

170 River Place, Greenville, 29601 | 864.679.5299
The Lazy Goat is an old favorite of mine. Visions of their fried goat cheese and Moroccan Lamb dance in my head. The globally-inspired menu includes small plates, pizzas, large plates, and family-style meals. With desserts like Orange Blossom Ice Cream and apple bread pudding on the menu, you should leave room for dessert!

Southside Smokehouse

726 S. Howard Avenue, Landrum, 29356 | 864.457.4581
Located about 40 minutes from Greenville, Southside Smokehouse‘s menu is all about Southern comfort food, such as barbecue and several Cajun and Creole dishes.
