Stunning Charles Towne Landing Elopement Location

Charles Towne Landing State Historic Park is located on a marshy point off the Ashley River in Charleston, SC. English settlers landed here in 1670 and established what would become the birthplace of the Carolina colony.
The grounds include 80 acres of gardens, with an elegant live oak alley and the Legare Waring House. This area is a favorite for elopements and engagement photo shoots! The Legare Waring House can be rented for large weddings or other special gatherings.
Guests can step aboard and tour the Adventure, Charleston's only 17th century relics sailing ship!
There is over 6 miles of trails as well as a zoo with otters, bears, bison, and more!
The park is open daily from 9-5. As you can see from the photos above and below, this park offers beautiful scenery, as well as historically significant, for a small entrance fee of $12 per person.
