Charleston

Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Bring the kids along to Folly Beach Public Beach and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Step out of Charleston with an excursion to The Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw--about 38 minutes away. The adventure continues: go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, snap pictures at Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.

For photos and tourist information, read our Charleston trip itinerary builder site .
