Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
You've now added Magnolia Plantation & Gardens to your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fort Sumter National Monument and Drayton Hall. Aiken-Rhett House and Nathaniel Russell House will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, stroll around Joe Riley Waterfront Park, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Charleston City Market.
