Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
For shopping fun, head to Carolina Cider Company or Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Charleston Museum and Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim. Venture out of the city with trips to Hopsewee Plantation (in Georgetown), The Center for Birds of Prey (in Awendaw) and Beaufort (The Point & Pat Conroy Literary Center). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Edmondston-Alston House, enjoy the sand and surf at Litchfield Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Washington Square, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael's Church.

In October, daily temperatures in Charleston can reach 78°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
