Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
You've added Ghost & Vampire Tours, Charleston History Tours, Nathaniel Russell House, and other attractions to your itinerary. Your inner history buff will appreciate Fort Sumter National Monument and Aiken-Rhett House. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Folly Beach Public Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Washington Square, and go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour.

To see more things to do, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Charleston trip itinerary tool .

San Francisco to Charleston is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from San Francisco to Charleston. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from San Francisco in June, with highs in Charleston at 87°F and lows at 73°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) so you can go by car to Savannah.
