Charleston

Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Get some historical perspective at Fort Sumter National Monument and Middleton Place. Take a break from the city and head to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. Change things up with a short trip to The Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw (about 38 minutes away). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Folly Beach Public Beach, make a trip to Charleston City Market, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

In August, daily temperatures in Charleston can reach 88°F, while at night they dip to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
