Trip to Charleston,SC

We spent the week at Charleston,SC and we had a blast! Contrary to what I believed, there is a lot to see and appreciate there. In a week’s time we hit The Battery, the South Carolina Aquarium, the USS Yorktown, the USS Hunley, Rainbow Row, the Outside Market, and Fort Sumter. We toured some of the historic downtown with a great horse carriage tour and even took the free trolley service.                                                                                                                                                                     My kids 12 and 8 had a great time and learned alot about the Carolina’s history with slavery and Europe.

We mostly did walking and checking things out ourselves. Staying at the Doubletree in downtown Charleston was a smart move. We were basically able to walk everywhere except to the aircraft carrier and Ft. Sumter. For those places, you can take the free trolley and the ferry boat ride over. As for the USS Hunley, we stopped on a whim on the last day and I think the kids enjoyed it most, due to the veterans there who told the exciting history of the submarine.
