1. Fort Sumter: The boat ride itself was a blast for the kids. They loved standing outside and getting blown over by the wind. This park has a great Junior Ranger program, and the kids ran from sign to sign filling out their packets. They learned a lot, and the views are fantastic!
City Market: We initially planned a quick walk through the market after grabbing a slice of pizza and on our way to free candy samples at Charleston Candy Kitchen (pralines - yum!), but the kids loved it so much that we spent nearly an hour there. They loved all the different vendors, especially the ones with puzzles, stuffed animals, and tee shirts.
3. Waterfront Park: After our free candy, we took a walk over to Vendue Range to check out the water. The Park has bench swings on the boardwalk and two fountains that kids can play in. It was a bit cooler, so the kids didn't run through the bigger fountain, but they loved wading in the Pineapple Fountain.
Charles Towne Landing: I have a full post planned for this historic site next week with a ton of pictures, but for the kids, the best parts were the museum (Crazy, right? It's interactive, concise, and colorful - perfect for them.), Animal Forest Trail, Adventure ship, and gift shop!
