Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Get some historical perspective at Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim and Old Sheldon Church Ruins. For shopping fun, head to Charleston City Market or Principle Gallery Charleston. Go for a jaunt from Charleston to Edisto Island to see Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area about 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael's Church, take in the exciting artwork at Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and enjoy the sea views from Morris Island Lighthouse.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 64°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
