What is one of the best-kept secrets for tourists (or locals) in Charleston?
Charles Towne Landing. Most who travel to Charleston, think of the wonderful food, walking through historical Charleston Proper, the beaches, islands and the people. Charles Towne Landing is a few miles inland and was the original settlement of the area by the English back in 1670.
Take the family (little ones will love it) or grab your significant other and enjoy a little getaway. I have been there about ten times since I was a kid and it has never been crowded. The attractions are sparsely scattered around the beautiful 80 acre property. The Animal Forest is a natural (without being attacked) as you can get – no zoo here.
