Charleston

Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Bring the kids along to Isle of Palms Beach and Edisto Beach State Park. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Litchfield Beach. Go for a jaunt from Charleston to Edisto Island to see Botany Bay Plantation Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area about 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, admire the local landmark of Pineapple Fountain, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael's Church.

For traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Charleston trip itinerary planner.

In July, daily temperatures in Charleston can reach 89°F, while at night they dip to 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
