Charleston
Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Fort Moultrie and Shem Creek Park. Change things up with a short trip to Hunting Island Lighthouse in Beaufort (about 1h 25 min away). Next up on the itinerary: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, stroll the grounds of Magnolia Cemetery, take in nature's colorful creations at Middleton Place, and contemplate the long history of Saint Michael's Church.

Expect a daytime high around 64°F in December, and nighttime lows around 47°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
