Charleston

Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Fort Sumter National Monument and Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. Take a break from Charleston with a short trip to The Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw, about 38 minutes away. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Folly Beach Public Beach, steep yourself in history at Nathaniel Russell House, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour.

For more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Charleston online attractions planner .

In March, daytime highs in Charleston are 66°F, while nighttime lows are 47°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
