Yes, Charleston is oozing with Southern charm; but with ghost tours, pirate excursions, fun parks and playgrounds, and everything in between, the city is also bursting with fun things to do. Ghost tours are an enormously popular Charleston attraction, and the Ghosts & Legends Walk is one of the best. This is the city's original year-round tour, and it is filled with local ghostly legends and folk tales. Hear hair-raising stories of Sue Howard's ghost, the ghost in City Hall and the Gullah Boo Hag. This is the only tour in Charleston that includes admission into the Unitarian Graveyard. You may want to leave a light on when you go to bed.
Check out Charleston's Pirates and Buccaneers. This excursion is presented by The Original Charleston Walks and takes you on a guided tour of The Walled City, Pirate Tavern, and more. You will travel back in time to 1718 when Charleston regularly battled the French, Spanish, and Native Americans.
St. Andrews Parks and Playground is the largest and undoubtedly the most spacious recreation area in Charleston. This exciting, safe and clean park is a must-visit. It hosts a wide array of programs and classes like Bujinkan -- a dog obedience classes -- as well as the exciting belly dancing classes. It also features the St. Andrew's Parks Hall of Fame, which recognizes locals who have contributed to the development of the community. With these fun things to do, you'll never get bored in Charleston.
