Located just two blocks from Hotel Bennett, The Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry is the perfect afternoon excursion. Ideal for children ages ten and under, kids can race boats down rapids and climb aboard a pirate ship. Families can also work together to create inspired masterpieces in the dedicated art center.
Shopping on King Street
Put on your walking shoes and take the family out for a day of vintage finds and souvenir browsing. Shopping on King Street will soon become your new Charleston tradition with book shops, clothing, art galleries and bistros to explore. Upper King is known as the design district, while Middle King is for the fashion gurus and Lower King offers a variety of antique shops.
Visit the Aquarium
Explore the ocean up-close with a visit to the South Carolina Aquarium. Home to more than five thousand animals and just a fifteen-minute walk from Hotel Bennett, the aquarium is a great afternoon activity to entertain family members of all ages. Check out the impressive Great Ocean Tank that covers the first through third floors, housing hundreds of different species.
