We are planning our first visit to the Charleston area with 4 adults & 4 children(ages 7, 7, 4, & 4).
The kids are good travelers(used to lot’s of walking, dining in restaurants, sitting through shows, etc). I know with kids our plans can change easily, but we just like to start out
with a planned daily itinerary and then go with the flow.
Please add or comment if you think we are missing something special or should skip anything here. The Aquarium is something that we could skip but I have seen that the weather will be
nearing 100(we are from South Florida and used to this) so I thought that was a cooler option.
*We are not going to the beach while in Charleston because after Charleston we are heading to Amelia Island.
Restaurants ~ I have the major one’s on my list ~ Fig, Snob, Peninsula, etc. But, I I’m also looking for really good moderately priced options or more casual ones as well.
Day 1 Arrive Mount Pleasant , ~ Could you suggest a dinner recommendation in Mount Pleasant area for our first night??
Day 2 – Drive or water taxi to Charleston(from Mount Pleasant). Charleston Pirate Tour. City Market & Market street. The Battery area, Waterfront Park.
Day 3 - Morning visit to Charleston Sea Aquarium. Lunch. Afternoon ferry to Fort Sumter. Alternates for the day ~
Museum Mile, Shopping(King Street, East Bay Street).
Day 4 - Middleton Place Plantation. Early evening Carriage ride(this is something the kids love in every city we visit)
and Farewell Dinner in Charleston.
Thank you in advance for any tips or suggestions. We are really looking forward to this trip.
