Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site
Mo to Su from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM
Charles Towne Landing is the site of the first South Carolina permanent English settlement. With a history dating back to 1670, the 80 acres of this park have become a living museum, featuring historical attractions, educational activities and plenty of outdoor spaces to explore. There's a visitor center that introduces kids and adults to life in colonial times. Experience hands-on activities and go on a self-guided tour of the area. Visit the Animal Forest to see species that the settlers encountered, like bears and pumas. Special events are frequent, including live cannon firings and musket demonstrations. Bring a lunch or purchase food from one of the vendors onsite.
