The four of us were in downtown Charleston one afternoon and noticed the abundance of horse carriage tours toting loads of tourists here and there. Of course, being tourists ourselves we decided to dive in and see what the fuss was about. Turns out, we loved it!
Coming from the Boston area, we have a pretty decent aquarium right in our backyard (the New England Aquarium) so any new aquariums have a high bar set for them. The South Carolina Aquarium did not disappoint us and we enjoyed a fun morning exploring its exhibits.
Magnolia Plantation & Gardens is a former rice plantation on the Ashley River just a few minutes drive from downtown Charleston. The main draw at Magnolia are acres of gardens of all kinds, one rolling into the next in an informal style. We are big fans of botanical garden type attractions at most places we visit, so this was right up our alley.
Based on some highlights from our time in The Holy City we’ve put together this list of things to do with kids in Charleston.
