One of Charleston’s landmarks is located in the heart of Johns Island off Maybank Highway. The Angel Oak is one of the oldest living things in the country and has become an iconic sight in the Lowcountry. This massive oak tree stands over 66 feet tall with a 28 foot circumference and branches as long as 187 feet! Although there is debate about the true age of the oak, many believe it is between 400 and 1,500 years old. The Angel Oak Park is free and is only a 20 minute drive from Charleston. If you are visiting Kiawah or Seabrook Islands, you will drive right past this incredible sight!

While on Johns Island, visit the Low Tide Brewery, go shopping or dining at Freshfield Village, or even charter a fishing boat at Bohicket Marina! If you like water sports, Trophy Lakes is also just over the Stono bridge on Johns Island. You can take a turn waterskiing or wakeboarding behind a Mastercraft Pro Star or rent the whole lake to have fun with a big group. If you would rather be around the water, play a round on the disc golf course. With a pro shop and rentals, you can participate in any of these activities, even if you’re just visiting.
