Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Visit Old Sheldon Church Ruins and McLeod Plantation Historic Site for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Litchfield Beach and Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Charleston: The Center for Birds of Prey (in Awendaw), Hopsewee Plantation (in Georgetown) and Firefly Distillery (in Wadmalaw Island). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind Fort Moultrie, don't miss a visit to Boneyard Beach, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and get to know the fascinating history of Charleston History Tours.

To see photos, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Charleston travel route planner.

In October, daily temperatures in Charleston can reach 78°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
