Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Sat): contemplate the long history of McLeod Plantation Historic Site, appreciate the history behind Fort Moultrie, get a new perspective on nature at The Charleston Museum, then get a taste of the local shopping with Charleston City Market, and finally admire the local landmark of Pineapple Fountain. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and then get interesting insight from Tours.

To find where to stay, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Charleston road trip planner.
