Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Explore Charleston's surroundings by going to Beaufort (St. Helena's Anglican Church & Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park) and Old Sheldon Church Ruins (in Yemassee). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, admire the local landmark of Pineapple Fountain, make a trip to H. L. Hunley, and expand your understanding of the military at Fort Sumter National Monument.

To see reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Charleston trip itinerary planning website .

July in Charleston sees daily highs of 89°F and lows of 75°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
