All of these activities are both educational and fun! Watch your child’s face light up as you make your way through this self-guided museum.

Take A Trip To The Aquarium

Anyone could appreciate the grandeur of the South Carolina Aquarium. It contains a two-story, 385,000 gallon Great Ocean Shark Tank. This is enough in itself to have your kids entertained for hours as they watch marine life swim before their eyes. But there’s even more than that! Your kids will also love to visit the aquarium’s touch tank, where they’ll have the chance to touch hermit crabs, sea urchins, horseshoe crabs, and starfish. Plus, if you take them to The Shallows, they’ll actually get to feed cownose rays and southern stingrays! A trip to the aquarium is a must with your kids!
