We were in Charleston SC near the end of April and the weather was beautiful! (with the exception of a few days of spring storms).
For the first week, we stayed about an hour outside of Charleston (in Ridgeville, SC) at a small State Park called Givhans Ferry State Park. It was a tiny but nice and clean park with about 35 sites. There wasn’t a lot to do in or around this park, which was perfect for us! It was the perfect opportunity to catch up on work and to rest.
After that week, we moved into Charleston and set up camp at Lake Aire Campground. There were not too many RV parks close to the historic district and it took us about 25-30 minutes to get there from Lake Aire. While we were there, we went on a carriage tour of the historic district, went on several motorcycle rides around town and also out to Sullivan’s Island, Mount Pleasant and Isle of Palms. We had to cut our trip short, to take care of a few things back in Florida, but we were able to get out to see the beautiful 400-year old Angel Oak Tree.
We also drove out to James Island County Park, where we will be staying on our trip back down South in the winter. We are really looking forward to going back there and seeing some of the sights that we didn’t have to chance to this time!
