Charleston is an imaginative city and as such a great place to bring kiddos of all ages, with plenty of attractions, museums and green spaces to stimulate their rapidly expanding minds and bodies. The visitor center has given a lot of thought to which activities are best for families, and put together a five-day itinerary at www.charlestoncvb.com/itineraries/family-playcation.
