Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.

There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour, pause for some serene contemplation at Grace Church Cathedral, and admire the masterpieces at Principle Gallery Charleston.
