Most People Don’t Know This South Carolina Zoo And Adventure Park Even Exists
Most people who visit Charleston don’t realize there is a zoo in the city. It’s located at Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site, a 664-acre site along the marsh and the Ashley River that is home not only to a natural habitat zoo, but also miles of trails, historic exhibits, ongoing archaeological digs, and more.
