Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and Fort Moultrie. Museum-lovers will appreciate Fort Sumter National Monument and Heyward-Washington House. Venture out of the city with trips to Edisto Island (Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area & Edisto Beach State Park) and Old Sheldon Church Ruins (in Yemassee). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, take an in-depth tour of The Charleston Museum, and contemplate the long history of McLeod Plantation Historic Site.

To find photos, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Charleston driving holiday tool.
