I am heading to Charleston with 3 small kids this week. I been before and had problems finding things for the kids to do (they are 3,3 and 6). I know about carraige rides and the aquarium and we are planning to do that, but would love a place to know of other things that young kids might enjoy. I have done some online research but found little. They are just too young, well at least the twins, for much history stuff. They will only tolerate shopping so long. I have seen on line that there are various swamp tours and boat tours. Anyone know if any are good? Any other thoughts?
Also, in case they get antsy and I need to just let them get there sillies out, does anyone know of any good playgrounds open to the public that is IN TOWN? Last time we were there with kids, we looked all over and could not find any playgrounds that were open to the public. Here in Raleigh, city playgrounds and school playgrounds are everywhere and open to the public. In Charleston, oddly, all the ones we found were behind lock and key. I know there is that one by the water that has the fountain the kids can play in, and we will certainly visit that, but was hoping there was a regular playground that would not require suits and towels (i.e. preparation!).
I appreciate any help anyone can give me. By the way, we are staying at Charleston Place.
