Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
You'll explore and learn at Fort Sumter National Monument and Principle Gallery Charleston. Visit Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and Middleton Place for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Charleston side-trips: Old Sheldon Church Ruins (in Yemassee) and The Center for Birds of Prey (in Awendaw). There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Patriots Point, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, contemplate the long history of Nathaniel Russell House, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.

To find photos, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Charleston road trip planning site .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
