One of our favorite places to explore in Charleston is Charles Towne Landing. As a teenager I volunteered there for many weekends, dressed up in the period clothing and all! Today I prefer to take a nice long walk around and teach our 3yo all about the true origin of bed bugs and where the old Settlers Village used to be. Of course, the 3yo leads the way, always going straight to the boat and then finally back down to the Animal Forest. I just enjoy every moment of beautiful bliss walking under the old oak trees.
There are also great picnic areas in and outside of the park. We grabbed lunch to go from Sesames (ooh yum) and had a nice shaded lunch before exploring.
Oh and all of the oak trees…
This one ^ is pretty cool because it has a stump marker to let you know that it was here at the time the Constitution was signed. Hello living history.

If you are looking for a mommy night out, you should definitely join me for one of the Yoga Under the Oaks nights. One hour of yoga followed by happy hour. Oh yeah! I don’t even do yoga, but the idea of just laying under these beauties for an hour of peace sounds pretty awesome to me!
