Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: contemplate the long history of Nathaniel Russell House, steep yourself in history at Aiken-Rhett House, then contemplate the long history of Boone Hall Plantation, and finally deepen your knowledge of military history at Fort Sumter National Monument.
