Charleston
Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Get in touch with nature at Isle of Palms Beach and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Discover out-of-the-way places like Audubon Swamp Garden and Fishing Charters & Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Edisto Island (Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area & Edisto Beach State Park) and Litchfield Beach (in Litchfield Beach). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, admire the natural beauty at Washington Square, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and steep yourself in history at Fort Sumter National Monument.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 89°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
