Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Old Sheldon Church Ruins and Fishing Charters & Tours. Your inner history buff will appreciate Hunting Island Lighthouse and Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Charleston: Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area (in Edisto Island) and Carolina Cider Company (in Yemassee). There's much more to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, take in nature's colorful creations at Washington Square, appreciate the extensive heritage of Charleston History Tours, and sample the fine beverages at Charleston Distilling Company.

To see photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Charleston tour app .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 64°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
