Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Battery & White Point Gardens, Old Slave Mart Museum, Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon, and other attractions you added. Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and The Calhoun Mansion will appeal to history buffs. Robert Lange Studios and The Charleston Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Middleton Place, examine the collection at Edmondston-Alston House, take in the views from Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, and get to know the fascinating history of Charleston History Tours.
