Charleston — 3 nights

Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Folly Beach Public Beach and Folly Beach Fishing Pier. Get outdoors at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. Step out of Charleston with an excursion to The Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw--about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, examine the collection at Edmondston-Alston House, admire the natural beauty at Washington Square, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim.
