Charleston

— 2 nights
Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Family-friendly places like Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and Charleston City Market will thrill your kids. And it doesn't end there: settle in for a delightful tour with a horse-drawn carriage tour, get engrossed in the history at Nathaniel Russell House, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, and deepen your knowledge of military history at Fort Sumter National Monument.

The Palmetto State
Composed of five distinct geographic regions with boundaries roughly parallel to the Atlantic coastline, South Carolina embraces rich history, scenic beauty, and outstanding cuisine. Originally established as a slave society dependent on the cultivation of rice and indigo, the state now boasts a diverse economy that includes massive production of textile goods, chemical products, machinery, and automobiles. Widely regarded as the beginning of the Deep South, the state remains a deeply conservative part of the country, fervently clinging to its religious and cultural traditions. South Carolinians are kind and open hosts to those who vacation here, eager to share the wealth of their cultural heritage with curious visitors. With many remarkable places to visit like Charleston and Hilton Head, your itinerary here is sure to be diverse and full of scenic attractions.
