Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Popular historic sites such as Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim and Fort Moultrie are in your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at The Charleston Museum and Heyward-Washington House. Explore Charleston's surroundings by going to Edisto Island (Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area & Edisto Beach State Park) and Old Sheldon Church Ruins (in Yemassee). The adventure continues: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, contemplate the long history of Fort Sumter National Monument, admire the natural beauty at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist.
