I have been here several times, and always bring our visitors. The Visitor Centre is very informative and a shady break on a summer day. The animal park is limited, but still draws me every time. I love the historical context and the informative guides, and altogether, it paints a wonderful history of the origins of Charleston. It also pays a wonderful tribute to the Native Americans that were wiped out by the Europeans.
The only downside is that there is no cafe, only vending machines
