We visited Charles Towne Landing for the Garden and Gun Jubilee and were blown away by the beauty and history of this "park." The facilities are phenomenal! The trees are amazing! A treasure for Charleston!

Wonderful place to spend several hours enjoying the informative audio guide, talks by re-enactors and a stroll through lovely grounds.

Do not leave Charleston without visiting Charles Towne Landing. The park is so well kept, and everything is beautiful. I loved every minute of my visit. My husband and I rented the bikes they had there (very cheap rental), and used the guided tour headsets that give a lot of great information. Bring your camera, because you will want to... More

Being right beside the water, you'd think this would be outrageous in price but it's not. Parking is a bit difficult if you drive. The food is excellent and filling. The menu is specifically seafood but has other items. The view on the water is memorable.

Wow, what a pleasant surprise! I haven't been back to Charles Towne Landing since 1973, shortly after it opened to the public. We really enjoyed the depth of the development of the area, as well as all of the information that was presented. The lady at the desk was very helpful, and answered any questions we had after the tour.... More

A pleasant paved pathway takes you over and around the actual site of the first English colony established in 1670. An animal park for the kids and a nice old residence left from the last owners before they sold the land to the state for a park. A great way to spend an afternoon and there's an informative interactive display... More

This park was perfect for someone traveling with a dog. Pets are allowed throughout except the animal trail. We used the audio tour and learned about this first settlement. We were here in January so the grounds were not in bloom, but I imagine it would be beautiful in spring. It was an informative and great experience.

Fun to walk around and see the view. Should stop by and see it. Nice walk and even in the rain people were out and about looking around.

My husband and I really enjoyed walking the grounds at Charles Towne Landing. When reading up this and then visiting, I felt the information in the touring book well understated this spot. What an important part of history for this area! Next time we will pack a lunch and really take our time. Also, the staff on hand that were... More

Beautiful and informative. The original history of Charleston - how it started, who the original settlers were, why they came and how they survived - it's all here.
