Our Favourite Things to do in Charleston with kids!

Andrew went to university on Hilton Head Island, so we organized another home exchange, and I arranged for us to fly into Charleston, which was a two-hour drive away. We had 48 hours to spend in Charleston with the kids, so we maximized our stay and had so much fun in the hot, humid weather!

Charleston Waterfront Park

Our first stop was to head straight to the water, walk along the pier, and take in the views of the Charleston harbour. Charleston’s Waterfront Park is the perfect venue for slowing down and taking a moment or two to relax.

Locals agree that this 10-acre park overlooking Charleston Harbor offers more than just stunning views but also plenty of room to roam—most notably on its waterfront section, which makes up most of the area! With an appealing location, visitors will love what it has in store when they visit here.

We arranged to stay at the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel, right in the heart of downtown Charleston and across the street from the famous Charleston City Market.

Where to Stay in Charleston – Hilton DoubleTree Hotel

One of the first things we did after exploring the waterfront was to arrange a carriage tour with Palmetto Carriage Works

Charleston with Kids – Carriage Tours

We chose the daytime carriage tour through 30 blocks of Charleston’s historic downtown district. We saw houses, gardens, churches, and parks, along with the history of the iconic buildings and architecture of the city.
