Charleston, SC

by Alissa

The Fire Museum in Charleston is worth visiting.  It is full of history, but it also makes learning fire safety interesting for all ages.

We traveled back to the 1670s at Historic Charles Towne Landing, where English settlers first established what would become the Carolina colony.    There is a visitor’s center with a museum,  a history trail with replica 17th century buildings and a trading vessel, a zoo with colonial-era animals, and more.

Drayton Hall plantation was finished in 1742 and has changed very little over the years.

Here’s more of our time in Charleston, including the Joseph Manigault House, The Old Exchange and Dungeon, The Slave Mart Museum, Kiawah Beach, and climbing at Half-Moon Outfitters.
