Charles Towne Landing

In 1670 a group of British settlers made this spot their new home. It would become the birthplace of the Carolina colony. It's much more than a historical site - there is a 17th-century replica sailing ship, working cannons, and an abundance of wildlife such as otters, bears, and bison. This is one of the most beautiful parks in the state with 80 acres of gardens and a live oak-lined alley. (Submitted by Allen Von Plinsky)

The entranceway transport you to another world. It’s hard to believe that there’s a major road just around the corner.
