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.
