Charleston

Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Explore hidden gems such as Hopsewee Plantation and Old Sheldon Church Ruins. St. Michael's Church and Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist will appeal to history buffs. Explore Charleston's surroundings by going to Kiawah Island (in Kiawah Island), The Center for Birds of Prey (in Awendaw) and Edisto Island (Edisto Beach State Park & Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area). And it doesn't end there: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, pause for some photo ops at Fort Moultrie, stroll the grounds of Magnolia Cemetery, and gain interesting insight with a heritage tour.

For reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Charleston trip planner.

In May, daytime highs in Charleston are 81°F, while nighttime lows are 64°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
