Favorite Things To Do

We are usually on the water but when we are on land we like to:
  • Go to the farmers market in Marion Square Saturday morning. There are a ton of fun vendors and many places to get breakfast.
  • Walk down to Riverfront Park and take pictures near the big pineapple fountain (where Megan and Landon got engaged).
  • Go admire the beautiful Rainbow Row and the Battery.
  • Take a carriage tour or ghost tour! It is an easy way to see the city in an hour and you get a really interesting history lesson.
  • Walk up and down King Street and shop the stores!
West Ashley:
  • Angel Oak Tree — it is on the way from the Church to Old Wide Awake Park (reception venue). The tree is estimated to be in excess of 400-500 years old, stands 66.5 ft. tall, measures 28 ft. in circumference, and produces shade that covers 17,200 square ft. Some contend that it is 1,500 years old.
