Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Fort Sumter National Monument and Patriots Point. Popular historic sites such as Hopsewee Plantation and Old Sheldon Church Ruins are in your itinerary. Explore Charleston's surroundings by going to Beaufort (Hunting Island Lighthouse & Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park) and Edisto Beach State Park (in Edisto Island). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the history behind Fort Moultrie, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, do sightseeing your way with Charleston History Tours, and steep yourself in history at McLeod Plantation Historic Site.

In July in Charleston, expect temperatures between 89°F during the day and 75°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
