After almost a week of rest from our time spent in St. Augustine, Florida, we FINALLY get take in some adventures in Charleston, South Carolina! Charleston doesn't disappoint when it comes to local attractions and the city is filled with so much history, that you could stay here for weeks, and still not experience all they have to offer!
We started our day in downtown Charleston, and quickly realized the roads are NOT made for a truck our size! We decided we would be best to see the city by taking a horse drawn carriage ride with Old South Carriage Company, so that we could get a feel for the downtown area and see all of the historic sites without the hassle of driving and parking. Seeing Charleston from a carriage is a MUST! The carriage operators are full of information about the city's history and can recommend activities or places to dine!
After checking out the City Market in downtown, we headed to Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum, where we toured the USS Laffey Destroyer and USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier! While we didn't have an entire day to spend here, we definitely recommend you give it a full day if your schedule allows, as there is so much to see here between the ships, aircraft, submarine, Medal of Honor Museum and Vietnam Exhibit! It was a highlight of our day, and we plan to go back when we have more time to see everything!
On our next adventure, we go to the Angel Oak Tree, which is one of the oldest and largest trees in the area! It is massive! Then we head to Driftwood Beach, which is at the Botany Bay Plantation Wildlife Management Area, on Edisto Island. Watch to find out why we chose this beach instead of the more popular, Boneyard Beach!
Last up, we decided to visit the North Charleston Fire Museum and Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park, which is part of Patriots Point Park and located directly under the Arthur Ravenel Bridge!
