We are making plans for a trip to Charleston late this summer/early fall. We are planning on staying at James Island Park and look forward to taking a horse carriage tour of Charleston, as well as a trip to the aquarium. Does anyone recommend a "not to miss" attraction we should visit while there? I have been searching the web but I know that the best suggestions come from fellow campers.. Thanks in advance!

Fort Sumpter, Fort Moultrie, Charles Pickney Historical Site, Caw Caw Nature and Historical Center and one or more of the several plantation sites. Charleston has a free trolly service in the Historic District that makes it pretty easy to get around.


Safe travels!

The attractions in Charleston are numerous and the historical factor off the chain. I loved just riding around looking at the old buildings as well as the major sites.

If you are into great food, don't miss HUSK's restaurant on Queen. It was rated #1 in the USA last year. He only uses food from the South and it is incredible. Even for lunch you should have reservations, however.

We followed the guide in the AAA Tour Book to take a great walking tour of Charleston. It is a great city and the campground/park is outstanding. Have a great trip.

Middleton Place Gardens, Magnolia Gardens or Drayton Hall are all within a couple miles out Hwy 61. Pick 1. Charleston Tea (a working farm). Folly Beach is about 15 minutes from the campground along with the Folly Beach Pier. Along with Husk, there are numerous fantastic restraunts downtown. Cru Cafe is one of my favorites. Definitely do a tour whether by horse and buggy, walking (ghost tour is great) or boat tour to Ft Sumter (sorry, no "P" is the correct spelling). You can spend an entire day at the USS Yorktown. Ft Moultrie NP is definitely worth the trip to Sullivan's Island. The fort was active from the Revolutionary War through WW II. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.

CSS Hunley, a confederate submarine is very interesting. Lots of civil war history including Ft. Sumter.
