The Charles Towne Experience
At Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site
Your Charleston experience begins, here, at Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site, the birthplace of South Carolina. Join a park ranger on a leisurely, yet educational, stroll through this historic, moss-draped landscape and explore the Lowcountry’s early colonial past. Learn what it took – the vision, the risk, the toil – to create the first permanent European settlement in what we now call the Palmetto State. Tour lasts about one hour and is free with admission.
