Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
On the 4th (Wed), steep yourself in history at Fort Sumter National Monument, then get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, then get interesting insight from Tours, and finally get the lay of the land with Walking tours. Here are some ideas for day two: take in nature's colorful creations at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and then take in the views from Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge.
