Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Fort Sumter National Monument and Middleton Place will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Folly Beach Public Beach and Fishing Charters & Tours. There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Charleston City Market, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, shop like a local with Meyer Vogl Gallery, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

To find reviews, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Charleston road trip tool .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 70°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
