Fort Moultire is bigger than Fort Sumter and there was no one there. You can go anywhere basically in the fort and it traces the history from the 1700s up to the Twentieth Century. A great companion to the more famous fort across the bay.

Fort Moultrie is a must see in the Charleston area! The reason the palmetto is on the state flag. Been through three wars starting with Revolutionary. And, on the beach on of the best views of Fort Sumter and Charleston Harbor.

This Ft goes along with Ft Sumtner- but honestly, it's waaaaaaay more awesome! This ft has all kinds of underground bunkers to visit along with outside views. It's really important to see both forts. We really loved spending time here! Must see!!!!

If you are taking your own boat then it shouldn't be a problem, the issue you may have is if you take the harbor boat over. It is more thane a 2 hour boat ride round trip and even though the dog would be allowed on the fort... More
