Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Tue): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael's Church, then get engrossed in the history at Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon, then contemplate the long history of Aiken-Rhett House, and finally settle in for a delightful tour with a horse-drawn carriage tour. On the 11th (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, steep yourself in history at Nathaniel Russell House, then pause for some photo ops at Fort Moultrie, then get engrossed in the history at Fort Sumter National Monument, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Washington Square.
