Charleston, South Carolina

Our family enjoyed a few days at Charleston Air Force Base in South Carolina. We walked around the city of Charleston, roamed an aircraft carrier and submarine at Patriots Point, and visited Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

Below are some of the planes on display at the Air Force Base.

That afternoon we headed to Patriots Point. They had an aircraft carrier from WWII that you could explore.

Our last day in Charleston we spent at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Unfortunately it wasn’t the best time of year to see flowers but it was still a beautiful day out to explore!

The best part of the petting zoo was the deer! They were roaming all over the place and were super friendly. This was our first time petting a live deer and we were all surprised how soft they were.
