5 Things to do in … Charleston (with Kids)

Traveling with kids can sometimes mean missing out on the best a destination has to offer, but for Charleston, South Carolina, it's a prime reason to visit. PEOPLE's Regan Stephens highlights the best things to eat, see and do with the whole family

1. STAY AT THE RESTORATION ON KING

Its central location and apartment-like amenities – think in-suite laundry and full kitchen – made The Restoration on King a perfect home base for traveling with kids, but its countless little luxuries made us feel like we were on vacation. Breakfast was delivered to our door each morning in a whimsical picnic basket, and each evening there was both a wine and cheese spread and later, a huge plate of warm cookies in reception. The helpful staff provided towels, chairs and a sand pail for our visit to Sullivan's Island and offered spot-on restaurant recommendations throughout our stay.
