Things to do in Charleston, South Carolina

Go to the Charleston City Market

It’s pretty much a requirement for tourists and a good reason. And while you’re here, check out the Sweet Grass Basket. They’re local and part of Charleston’s history. Charleston has a ton of restaurants that are perfect for the family. Places like Fig and Husk locally source their food, so it’s a great meal on your parent’s dime. And don’t forget to check out one of Charleston’s many bakeries. Wake up early one morning and head to the farmer’s market with your family. Everything is fresh, and you won’t be disappointed.

Go on a ghost or historical tour of Charleston

This city is known for its rich history, and a walking tour is a great way to learn about it first hand. Get out on the water. Go on a harbor cruise or a tour of Fort Sumter or just rent a boat and go out by yourself. Take a car out and explore. Some of us don’t get the chance to leave the peninsula, but if you do, why not visit the U.S.S Yorktown on Patriot’s Point. Or you can visit the Angel Oak Tree, Charles Towne Landing, or one of the many other places to explore in Charleston.

Go for a walk or a bike ride on the Ravenel Bridge.

The view is unparalleled, and there’s free parking on the Mount Pleasant side. Cheer on the Cougars during the school year or watch one of Charleston’s minor league baseball or hockey teams.
