Come see where South Carolina was born and where the first Charleston colonists set up in 1670, at a preserved state historic site. The hike leads you first to the Animal Forest, where a variety of creatures from bears to bison to bobcats are ensconced in habitats, along with farm animals. From there you will head out to Albemarle Point, the site of Charleston’s original settlement, viewing historic sites and absorbing interpretive information. See the ship Adventure on Old Towne Creek. On your way back view the Legare-Waring House and Mrs. Waring’s Garden.
