It’s normal to feel hungry or thirsty in Charleston heat while you’re exploring Fort Sumter. If you choose to take the Fort Sumter Tours Ferry Boat, you can enjoy a snack bar and a few water fountains. Water fountains are also spread out across the outside of Fort Sumter.
One of the coolest things about the water fountains on the boats and across the fort is the innovative design. While each water fountain has a typically water fountain spout design, it also has a designated vertical spout. Thus, visitors can quickly and efficiently fill up their water bottles. The vertical water spout is also healthier than the mouth water spouts.
It’s important to note that once inside Fort Sumter, visitors are not allowed to picnic. But, small snack items and water is allowed.
After spending a day exploring Fort Sumter, stop by the Fort Sumter Bookstore. The Bookstore has three locations: Fort Sumter, Fort Sumter Visitor Education Center at Liberty Square, and Fort Moultrie Visitor Center on Sullivan’s Island.
Each Bookstore is owned and operated by Eastern National. Eastern National has been working alongside the National Park Service for many years. Together, Eastern National and the National Park Service have ensured the souvenirs sold at the bookstores are educational and of superior quality.
While majority of the items within the bookstores are books and educational items, the bookstores offer little trinkets, stuffed animals, apparel, drinkware, and other souvenirs that are related to Fort Sumter.
For more information about the bookstores, or any other opportunity at Fort Sumter, visit the fort’s official website, or contact them during their hours of operation.
