Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Explore hidden gems such as Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist and Edmondston-Alston House. Visiting Charleston Tea Plantation and Folly Beach Public Beach will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Saint Michael's Church, make a trip to Rainbow Row, get engrossed in the history at Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, and steep yourself in history at Aiken-Rhett House.
