Savannah to Charleston

SC Aquarium

Residents at the SC Aquarium include an albino alligator, playful river otters, bright green moray eels and stingrays. There are numerous exhibits (of both aquatic and wildlife), a touch tank and a stingray tank and the two-story, 385,000-gallon Great Ocean tank, which houses a 220-pound loggerhead sea turtle and several tiger sharks. A majestic bald eagle (with a partial wing) is rehabbing at the aquarium as well as several turtles. The best times to visit are weekdays before 11:00 a.m. or after 2:00 p.m. See hours and buy tickets ($24.95/day) online

While in Charleston, have lunch or dinner at Fleet Landing for Charleston Shrimp & Grits. Tip: The outside bar seats are first-come, first-served. Take a walk over to Waterfront Park for photo-ops at the Pineapple Fountain before claiming a waterfront swing on the covered pier.
