Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
On the 18th (Wed), contemplate the long history of Nathaniel Russell House, take an in-depth tour of Fort Sumter National Monument, and then get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, then take in nature's colorful creations at Battery & White Point Gardens, and then go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour.

The Palmetto State
Composed of five distinct geographic regions with boundaries roughly parallel to the Atlantic coastline, South Carolina embraces rich history, scenic beauty, and outstanding cuisine. Originally established as a slave society dependent on the cultivation of rice and indigo, the state now boasts a diverse economy that includes massive production of textile goods, chemical products, machinery, and automobiles. Widely regarded as the beginning of the Deep South, the state remains a deeply conservative part of the country, fervently clinging to its religious and cultural traditions. South Carolinians are kind and open hosts to those who vacation here, eager to share the wealth of their cultural heritage with curious visitors. With many remarkable places to visit like Charleston and Hilton Head, your itinerary here is sure to be diverse and full of scenic attractions.
