Charleston is filled to the brim with outdoor attractions that are easy-and safe- to take advantage of. Take a stroll on the sand or explore some history. Charleston has something for everyone.

Home to the pineapple water fountain, Charleston’s waterfront park is the perfect leisurely stroll. Catch beautiful views of the harbor as well as a pier situated with swinging benches. We suggest a morning walk as it tends to be much quieter (& cooler!)
Hint: Grab a cup of coffee at One Broad Street
