Sister restaurant to the amazing Obstinate Daughter (Sullivan's Island), this restaurant is one to get a reservation to dine at! Striving to capture the cultural magic of true Italian dining, Wild Olive places the utmost value on simple, seasonal cuisine, paired with food friendly wines. While sourcing as much product locally as possible, the kitchen staff transforms the bounty of the lowcountry into artisanal variations of regional Italian classics. House-made pasta and house-cured salumi are focal points for Chef Larson and his team. In 2013, Wild Olive became the first Certified Green Restaurant in South Carolina.

There are a few spots off the peninsula you shouldn’t miss, including the massive natural wonder, the Angel Oak. Located on Johns Island, the tree is named for Martha and Justin Angel, who owned the land where it casts a shadow over 17,000 square feet of land. The tree is estimated to be 1,500 years old, making it probably the oldest living thing in Charleston. It is 65 feet tall and 25 feet around. Its heavy branches plunge into the earth and re-emerge stronger. There is no charge to visit, be awed and take photos, but stop in the gift shop and buy a remembrance or make a donation to keep the tree protected from ever encroaching development. It truly is a sight for generation

McLeod Plantation has borne witness to some of the most significant periods of Charleston’s - and our nations - history. Today McLeod Plantation is an important 37-acre Gullah/Geechee heritage site that has been carefully preserved in recognition of its cultural and historical significance. The grounds include a riverside outdoor pavilion, a sweeping oak allée, and the McLeod Oak, which is thought to be more than 600 years old. It is a place like no other, not frozen in time but vibrant, dynamic, and constantly evolving, where the winds of change whisper through the oak trees and voices from the past speak to all who pause to listen. McLeod Plantation was built on the riches of sea island co

White Point Gardens, located at the tip of the peninsula, provides great views of the Charleston Harbor and Fort Sumter. In its early days, it served as a promenade or public square. In the early 1700s, pirates (including the infamous Stede Bonnet) were hanged here. Local lore has it that these 50 or so pirates continue to haunt the gardens that also were home to fortification for the city during the American Revolution, the War of 1812 and the Civil War. Historic cannons and shells decorate the edges of the gardens.
