I don’t usually feature the campgrounds where we stay, but James Island County Park is something to write home about! Miles of hiking/biking trails, lakes and grasslands make this a beautiful place to be, even without the added attraction of downtown Charleston just a few miles away.
We’ve been hesitant to visit plantations in our travels – the whole concept is just too depressing. But we saw a flyer for McLeod Plantation Historic Site, a place that tells the story of the Gullah/Geechee people as they made the transition from slavery to freedom. Since we’ll be visiting several Gullah/Geechee sites along the corridor that runs along the coast of South Carolina and Georgia, we thought this would be a good place to start. We were not disappointed!
