Are you and your family vacationing in Charleston this summer and are looking for some free things to do? We at Carolina One Vacations can give you the scoop on what you can do for free in the area. When you stay in one of our Isle of Palms vacation rentals you will be close to some of the fun. Let’s look below at what three things your family can do for free while on vacation.
Visit the Charleston Tea Plant
Has your family ever been to a tea plant before? If not, then you are definitely in for a treat while on vacation to Charleston this summer. You can go to the only tea garden in North America and enjoy a free tour of the factory at Carolina Tea Plantation. Learning how the tea is made to having the opportunity to look at the whole process is something fun for every family. After you finish up the tour, you will be able to sample several different flavors of tea in their gift shop. What a great activity that your whole family will enjoy and learn a thing or two as well!
Another great location that your family can visit while you’re on vacation to Charleston is visiting Waterfront Park. Here you and the family will be able to see the pineapple fountain that may remind you of a particular cartoon character but more elegant. Swing on the pier while you are spotting dolphins in the water nearby. The views at this park are absolutely breathtaking and can be a great location to let the kids enjoy some fresh air. Be sure to bring a camera or your phone to capture the beauty of this park!
Visit the Angel Oak Tree
Charleston is known for having a lot of history, and the Angel Oak is one you can’t miss. You and your family will be able to take a drive to visit the 1500-year-old Angel Oak, which has been reported to be the oldest living structure on the east coast. This tree is located on Johns Island but is only a short drive away. Take pictures of the tree and marvel in all its beauty and structure!
While there are many other things that your family can do for free in Charleston, these are the three we wanted to share with you. If you haven’t booked your summer vacation to spend it with us at Carolina One Vacations, now is the time. We look forward to seeing you and your family this summer, making new memories!
