Fort Moultrie was amazing. The first day we arrived in Mount Pleasant, we just drove around. The Fort was closed by the time we arrived, so we just walked around outside. It seemed like it would be very disappointing. However, we decided to go the morning we left considering it was only $5 for the 4 of us. We thought... More

This fort has lots of American History. The Visitor's Center has nice exhibits plus a film all about the fort and its connection to the Civil War. The grounds are expansive, plus it's only a short walk to the beach from here.

This was the second of two sites visited (Fort Sumter) being the First. The Tour Guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable regarding the entire history of the Fort (From Revolution to WWII) and provided valuable tidbits regarding its history that I found fascinating. The displays are very good and the people friendly. I would recommend this as a compliment to... More

Loved it. Amazing what the men did years ago to protect our country. It is great view of the water while you are learning about our history.

At this fort there is no closed-door. You can go almost everywhere, however this is not always the best. I know this sounds strange, but getting to see almost everything. Is like seeing more, more and more of the same. The coolest thing is the fort is in 4 parts each part in it own time from Revolutionary War, Civil... More

We went to Charleston last year for vacation and went to Fort Sumter just for the boat ride and I loved it but riding over we were told about Fort Moultrie and thought well if you see one then the other is probably the same so we didn't go to see it last year. After visiting it this year we... More

This is a good place to revisit your history lesson. This Fort is full of surprises, from the age of pirates, to the present age. You can learn of protecting our homeland from invaders, and how this fort was on guard from German U-boats, The Fort is greatly preserved in the each time.

In August I would go in the morning. coastal views and a great place for picnics. Let the kids run, but keep them off the canons. Civil war and... More

Most people know about Fort Sumter, but I was delighted to experience its sister right across the water and to better understand its place in history during the Spanish American War. The Fort has expansive grounds that is included in the Sullivan's Island Defenses in use from 1776 (Yeah Freedom!) up to the mid 19th century. Personally, I am a... More
