Although we didn't stop at the Citadel, we passed through as part of our tour, took photos, and enjoyed the History Lesson from our Tour Guide.

Not really a destination to travel to. You can take a drive around the campus, see an F-4 Phantom, a Huey helicopter, a tank...grass, trees, ZZZZZZZZzzzz..There are better things to do in Charleston than waste time there.

The citadel has a great location and offers an opportunity to shop souvenirs in one location. The music was good and it offers a quick snack stop

The Citadel is definitely fun to see while your in Charleston. My son enjoyed seeing the cannons, fighter aircraft and the tanks. We sat in the square and just relaxed under the trees for awhile. If you like the show HOUSE OF CARDS, this is the university that Frank Underwood graduated from - so... it's worth seeing! :)
