Top 5 Things To Do

  1. Visit the interactive museum in the Visitors Center, and then walk the self-guided history trail, using the audio tour as your guide.
  2. Attend a black powder program and feel the earth shake and hear the cannons boom or muskets bark. Meet living history demonstrators in period costume and learn about the threats that faced the first Charles Towne residents.
  3. Visit the wharf area where English settlers landed in 1670. See the Adventure, Charleston’s only 17th century replica ship, called a trading ketch.
  4. Visit the Animal Forest that is home to animal species that were indigenous to South Carolina at the time of the settlement such as bison, black bear, puma, otters and more.
  5. Rent a bicycle and explore the garden and nature trail. The park provides several miles of trails along the marsh or through the 80 acres of English park-style gardens.
