cornflake dreams.: an afternoon at Charles Towne Landing.

2.09.2015

an afternoon at Charles Towne Landing.

It was warm and sunny this weekend in Charleston, so H and I decided to take advantage of the 70-degree temps and get outside. We spent Sunday afternoon at Charles Towne Landing. The historic site is located along a marshy point by the Ashley River, and it's the birthplace of the Carolina colony. It's a gigantic park full of beautiful oak, palmetto and pine trees, and a variety of birds and animals. There are seven miles of walking trails, including a nature and history trail, and 80 acres of park-style gardens with pretty pink, red, and white camellia flowers. H and I walked around the park for a few hours, but next time we want to rent bikes!
Charles Towne Landing is a great place to spend an afternoon. It's family friendly and there were tons of families running around with their kids, and people walking their dogs. It would also be a cute place to have a picnic :) The park charges a $10/per person admission fee but it's worth it.

  6. That park looks beautiful! I love going to places like that and wish that there were more of them in Indiana. I was spoiled by all the park options when I lived in Denver and it's just not the same here. lol. So glad you got to go out and explore and enjoy the weather! Happy Monday!

  13. Charles Towne Landing looks so beautiful! We headed over there one night after work, only to discover it was about to close! Did you see they have a "car membership" for $75 and you can basically bring as many people as you want, all year, and it's good at all the other parks in the state, too? I think we're definitely going to do that and make it a go-to with anyone who comes to visit.
