Are you or someone you’re traveling with a fan of ocean animals? Then you should check out the Charleston Aquarium while you’re in town. With an interactive touch tank, not only can you see the intriguing animals, but you can also touch them. A must-see, especially for families. You can also take an educational nature tour with Sandlapper Water Tours to get up close and personal with Charleston’s vibrant coastal wildlife, explore the rivers and creeks that meander through the Lowcountry, and travel to an uninhabited barrier island. More of a history buff? Check out the USS Yorktown or the Unitarian Church Cemetery. Rainy day? Explore one of Charleston’s many historical mansions, like the Williams Mansion or the Nathaniel Russel House. Traveling with children? Check out the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry. With plenty of options to choose from, there’s a sightseeing stop for everyone in your group. Before you leave the city, be sure to make time for shopping on King Street! You don’t need spending money to enjoy the sights this street brings, but it sure does help! Whether you’re a pet lover looking for some Charleston goodies for your furry kids or an art fiend looking to take some of the Holy City’s beauty home with you, there’s a shop for everyone here on King Street.
