It is a must to visit Fort Sumter while you are in Charleston. I would recommend buying your tickets on-line if you are on a tight schedule. The Ferry ride to the Fort and back was enjoyable; 20 minutes to the fort, we saw a dolphin, and the view was nice. You can take the Ferry from Patriots Point or Liberty Square. Notice, there are different times from each starting point. The Fort it self is awesome with a lot of historical information and description. Once you see the fort, you can imagine the war like you were there hundreds of years ago. If you have kids, you might want to take the 4-5pm trip, so they can see and participate in lowering the flag. The whole trip was enjoyable and the view from the Fort was awesome!
