Atlanticus.

Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon and Old Slave Mart Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Aiken-Rhett House and Folly Beach Public Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Charleston side-trips: Wadmalaw Island (Charleston Tea Plantation & Firefly Distillery). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, explore the world behind art at Principle Gallery Charleston, get engrossed in the history at Charleston Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church.
