Fodor's Review

Adventure into the Charleston area's past at Old Santee Canal Park. Four miles of boardwalks and unpaved paths take you through Biggin Swamp and along the last portion of the country's first true canal. Prefer to explore by boat? Rent a canoe for $3 per half hour. An interpretive center details the history of the canal, which was used to transport goods from upstate South Carolina to the port of Charleston for the first half of the 19th century. The circa-1840 Stony Landing Plantation House is furnished with period reproductions, offering a glimpse into what a planter's secondary home might have been like in that era. Also on-site (and included in admission) is the Berkeley County Museum and Heritage Center, which tells the story of the county's cultural and natural history.
