    Issue 3: Charleston

    A ferry trip to Fort Sumter is a two-for-one adventure: The ride itself is beautiful, with stellar views of the Charleston Harbor, and the fort—the famous starting point for the Civil War, when Major Robert Anderson refused to surrender the fort to Confederate troops—is fascinating. Look for the five historic replicas of flags flying over the fort that don’t have 50 stars. This is a great place to take kids.
