Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fort Sumter National Monument and Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. Visiting Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours and The Center for Birds of Prey will get you outdoors. The adventure continues: take a memorable tour with Tours, stop by MoonPie General Store, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
