suggestions on activities & dining in Charleston, SC.

I am vacationing at Seabrook resort in late July with my family ( my wife, 16 yr. old son and 13 yr. old daugther ). We have vacationed many times in the Charleston area and would love to get some new ideas on places to eat and things to do.

With respect to our dining preferences, we love fresh seafood, good steaks, southern fried chicken and italian restaurants.

With respect to our activity preferences, we would love to rent Kayaks to take some day trips along the innercoastal waterways. Additionally, we are interested in a reputable parasailing company or ocean fishing excursions. I am familiar with Bohicket Marina, but have never taken any excursions with them.

Any ideas on fun things to do in downtown Charleston would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

First let me suggest you post this on the Charleston and Seabrook Island forums. Secondly, you start out saying you are vacationing at Seabrook, Are you looking for day trip ideas to Charleston while you are staying at Seabrook?

You might consider taking the kids over to Folly beach for a surfing lesson, hubby and I had as much fun as our son did a few years ago...

Take a visit out to Cherry Point Landing to pick up some fresh shrimp, straight off the boat and book a marsh tour (sunset cruise is fun, call in advance to book, don't just show up)...

Thanks for the suggestion Golfer. I will do so. As posted, I'm looking for things to do near Seabrook, but also Charleston.

Great ideas, KiawahBeth! Thanks.
