There are unique museums in North Charleston, vibrant art and culture scenes, and easy access to Charleston's historic landmarks. The H.L. Hunley Museum, where a recovered 1864 submarine can be seen, and its significance explained, is a must-see for history buffs, as is River Park's Greater Charleston Naval Base Memorial.
Fire engines of all ages are on display at the North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Education Center. The North Charleston City Gallery and the North Charleston Coliseum both host art exhibits and concerts for the community's enjoyment.
