Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Charleston is known for parks, historic sites, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in nature's colorful creations at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, tour the pleasant surroundings at Joe Riley Waterfront Park, go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Charleston trip builder website.
