Charleston
Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Take a break from the city and head to Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area and Kiawah Island. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Center for Birds of Prey and Dolphin & Whale Watching. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Charleston: Edisto Beach State Park (in Edisto Island), Awendaw (Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge & Sewee Visitor & Environmental Education Center) and Dewees Island (in Isle of Palms). And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, identify plant and animal life at Washo Reserve, enjoy the sand and surf at Litchfield Beach, and get engrossed in the history at The Charleston Museum.

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Charleston trip itinerary builder tool .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Charleston Air Force Base-International Airport, Savannah Hilton Head International Airport and Columbia Metropolitan Airport. February in Charleston sees daily highs of 20°C and lows of 7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
