Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Charleston: Brookgreen Gardens (in Murrells Inlet) and Sweeties Original Low Country Pralines and Chocolates (in Georgetown). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, settle in for a delightful tour with a horse-drawn carriage tour, don't miss a visit to H. L. Hunley, and steep yourself in history at Fort Sumter National Monument.

For traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Charleston driving holiday app .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
