Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Head to Charleston Farmers Market and Robert Lange Studiosfor plenty of shopping. Get in touch with nature at Folly Beach Public Beach and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. When in Charleston, make a side trip to see The Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw, approximately 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get interesting insight from Tours, admire the majestic nature at Isle of Palms County Park, admire the natural beauty at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, and steep yourself in history at Fort Sumter National Monument.
