  • Plantations: "Unfortunately, there's no major zoo in the Charleston area. Thankfully, Charles Towne Landing's 22 acre Natural Habitat fills in as a full zoo and wildlife environment home to species native to South Carolina's first settlement area."
  • Parks: "Charles Towne Landing is an excellent activity for all ages and all seasons, with exhibits and events taking place year-round."
  • Outdoor Activities: "Check the Charles Towne Landing website for special events such as musket-firing demonstrations and family movie nights in summer."
  • Historic Sites: "Don't miss the Animal Forest at Charles Towne Landing! You can even "adopt" and sponsor one of the indigenous species animals living in the park!"
  • Best for Plantations, Historic Sites Because: Charles Towne Landing offers more than the 'typical' plantation setting, becoming more like a life-size educational playground set in coastal South Carolina's colonial era.
  • Best for Parks Because: See rare animal species, bike or walk beautiful trails, and learn the history of the area's first English settlement. History abounds at Charles Towne Landing!
  • Best for Outdoor Activities Because: This National Historic Site is located just a short drive from downtown, and is the site of the first permanent European settlement in the Carolinas.

  • Museums: "Check the Charles Towne Landing website for special events such as musket-firing demonstrations and family movie nights in summer."
  • Best for Museums Because: This South Carolina State Park, also on the National Register of Historic Places, is more than a plantation or park - it's a historic outdoor museum of sorts, complete with animals, a replica tall ship, events and more.
