Charleston

— 4 nights
Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Old Sheldon Church Ruins and Heyward-Washington House. Visit Litchfield Beach and Kiawah Beachwalker Park for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Charleston: Beaufort (Monkey's Uncle, Pat Conroy Literary Center, &more), Freshfields Village (in Kiawah Island) and Georgetown (Prince George Winyah Episcopal Church, Hobcaw Barony, &more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Unitarian Church in Charleston, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Rusty Bull Brewing Co., and look for all kinds of wild species at Caw Caw Interpretive Center.

More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.
