One of the things Cara and I have enjoyed over the years, and the boys as well, have been the county parks. Whether you just want to go for a long walk in the woods, or are looking for someplace to take the kids, there are just so many things to do. CCPRC, Charleston County Parks and Recreation also manages the beach park at Folly and Isle of Palms as well as the Folly Fishing Pier. Visit www.ccprc.com for event calenders and a list and description of the facilities. At the top of our list for many years was the Water park at Wannamaker Park in N Charleston. Our son Zachary was 13 when it opened, and he pretty much lived there all summer. One of the parents would take a car load in the morning and drop them off. And that would be that for the day…aahhh…peace and quiet. And they were so much more enjoyable to be with when they came home with all that excess energy burned off.
If you’re planning a visit to Charleston, or if you’re a resident here, stop by www.ccprc.com and see what they have to do for your family. We love Charleston because there are so many things to do outdoors, and you can enjoy the outdoors pretty much year round. Just be careful in the Summer. Sunburn and Heat Exhaustion are no fun, so make sure you take good care of yourselves.
