Tips from locals
Civil War era fort. Tours start with boat ride out to fort, so fun way to ride a boat thru harbor and also see the fort. Educational and neat history tour.
Fort Sumter is a sea fort in Charleston, South Carolina, notable for two battles of the American Civil War. It was one of a number of special forts planned after the War of 1812, combining high walls and heavy masonry, and classified as Third System, as a grade of structural integrity.
Boat trip to this historic island Fort where the first shots of the Civil War were fired. Great views of the city, too. This trip is best enjoyed when it is not crazy hot. If it is crazy hot, spend the day at the beach :)
Water tour to Charleston’s most notable Fort! Must see and experience, may see family of dolphins along the way as well as added bonus.
Even if national monuments aren’t your thing do it just for the boat ride. On the boat ride you will see the Charleston harbor and some porpoises!

“It's a haul from the farm, but it's one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston. Seafood meets Italian fine dining. Pair it with a visit to the beach at Isle of Palms so you can feel like you got your gas money's worth.”

“When the weather isn't beach and downtown friendly, we will go to the movies a Town Center in Mt. Pleasant. Town Center is also a beautiful shopping area with restaurants. It is not a mall which is a good thing in our opinion!”
