The downtown area is buzzing seven days a week. Parking is not easy but utilizing a parking garage for $2 an hour works pretty well. Enjoy walking around and exploring the town's buildings, restaurants and stores. Horse ride tours are popular.

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is another top highlight to see and do in Charleston which also includes a petting zoo. The grey deer are friendly and kids will love petting them.

Charleston, SC 29414

Next stop is Columbia, the capital of South Carolina. A highlight here is the Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden.

The gardens are at a different section, you will need to hop on the tram that runs every 15 minutes to bring you over to the gardens otherwise it's an exhausting climb and walk. You first walk over the bridge to the other section to catch the tram. There are also parking by the garden side.

Check out the slideshow of pictures.
