Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Charleston is known for historic sites, parks, nightlife, wildlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in nature's colorful creations at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, make a trip to Riley Waterfront Park, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and take in the views from Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge.

To find traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, use the Charleston trip itinerary planner.

In May in Charleston, expect temperatures between 81°F during the day and 64°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
