Reviewed July 19, 2014

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.

“Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

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.

“Fun to see”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

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! :)
