Fire Museum The North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum was founded in 2007. Since then, it has sought to provide a historical and educational context on the American fire fighting services. Built to resemble a classic fire house, visitors will feel a sense of reverence the moment they enter the lobby with its 20 feet tall ceilings. The Fire Museum houses over 20 restored fire vehicles along with antique and current artifacts that give visitors a real sense of the story behind this heroic tradition.
North Charleston City Gallery North Charleston puts immense value on the arts. The City Gallery is the local home to art by international, national and local artists. Locals should check back monthly for new exhibitions. The City Gallery also offers locally made jewelry, crafts and other gifts for purchase. Riverfront Park This park is a must-see for any Navy fanatics. Riverfront Park sits on the banks of Cooper River, next to beautiful, historic homes and towering oak trees. Many of these homes belonged to Naval Officers at one time. The Greater Charleston Naval Base Monument stands proudly at the former location of the Charleston Naval Base. Riverfront Park is also home to the National Outdoor Sculpture Competition and Exhibition, featuring contemporary sculptures on display year round.
For fans of baseball and softball, Wescott Park will be a preferred outdoor venue. Three fields of different sizes make this park home to baseball leagues of all ages and levels. The park also features walking trails through the area’s wetlands, great for spotting wildlife. Several shelters make Wescott Park a great place to spend the day hiking and cooking out with the family.
