Day Trippin’ on Memorial Day at Fort Moultrie

May 11, 2018 § Leave a comment

 

Officially part of Fort Sumter National Monument, Fort Moultrie has ties to The Revolutionary War, The Civil War, World War I, and World War II and dates all the way back to 1776. It is an exceptionally patriotic place, and for that reason alone, it makes it the perfect destination to celebrate Memorial Day (May 28) or any warm, beautiful summer or spring day. But, there are so many more reasons to visit and linger at this Charleston destination gem.

Located on Sullivan’s Island, it is an easy trek from any greater Charleston locale, but it is the sheer beauty of the place, easy parking, and almost illegally inexpensive day passes, that make it well worth spending a good chunk of the day here. History buffs will revel in the clear and well-written information boards strategically placed along the walking path to show what events took place, where, when, and why.

With its birds-eye views of Ft. Sumter (actually so close it feels like you can touch the ancient fortress), this patriotic perch also affords sweeping views of the entire harbor, the edge of the Atlantic, and a doll’s house sized distance view of tiny steeples and columned mansions of the Charleston peninsula.  If you are lucky, you will catch views of dolphins frolicking in the shimmering waters and a salty, soul-reviving sea breeze.

Parking is exclusively for monument visitors (not the general beach crowd), so it is easy to access and included in your entrance fee. Fees for a group of four adults (family pass) is $5, children age 15 and under are admitted free, single adult tickets are $3, and senior citizens (age 62+) are admitted for $1 each. There is a designated picnic area and dogs are welcome to walk the grounds – though no food or dogs are welcome inside the visitor’s center. Guided tours are also available.

FORTMOULTRIEVIEWS

Fort Moultrie is located at 1214 Middle Street, Sullivan’s Island, SC 29482. The park is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., including on Memorial Day. For more information, call 843.883.3123, ext. 220 or visit www.nps.gov/fosu.

Memories of a Lowcountry Oyster Festival

February 19, 2018 § Leave a comment

CHG VIP $250 Ticket Winner/Guest Carmela Gordon Describes Lowcountry Oyster Festival Fun

On a rainy Sunday, January 28, Carmela Gordon and her boyfriend enjoyed an afternoon of oysters, food, libations and fun at the Charleston Hospitality Group’s VIP tent at the Lowcountry Oyster Festival. The 47 year-old accounting professor at Trident Technical College was “very excited” when she heard she won out of a field of almost 600 social media submissions.

A Lowcountry native, it was her first visit to the Lowcountry Oyster Festival since age 11, and the very first festival shared with her boyfriend. “We both love oysters. The CHG buffet food was awesome. We especially loved the shrimp and grits from TOAST, the shrimp from Cove Oyster Bar & Grille, and the chicken and sweet potato waffles from Eli’s Table,” says Gordon.

Gordon and her family of 3 children and 3 grandchildren returned to Charleston in 2013 because she loves the festivals, food and people here. “I wanted the kids to grow up in Charleston. We plan on returning to the Lowcountry Oyster Festival next year.”
