Off to Fort Sumter
Nov. 2021 • Couples
This is the jump off to go to the fort- it really does not have as much information as I expected. Catching the boat to the fort- it works great!

A must when in Charleston

The park service does a good job here to give you a background about the Civil War and how Charleston and Fort Sumter played a part in all of this. Recommend going here, and it is free.

Small museum on the events leading up to the attack on Fort Sumter
Jun. 2021
I visited the Fort Sumter Visitor Education Center in June 2021 during my visit to Charleston. It has a museum on the history of the events leading up to the attack on Fort Sumter. The boat tour of Fort Sumter departs from near here. There also was a nice gift and souvenir shop.

We took the 2 hour tour and enjoyed it. Cool to see the fort and learn about its history and nice to get out on the water for a bit. The ferry crew were friendly, and park service personnel provided great insight on the history of the fort and the area.
