Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Get some historical perspective at St. Michael's Church and Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Fort Moultrie and Aiken-Rhett House. There's lots more to do: stroll the grounds of Magnolia Cemetery, tour the pleasant surroundings at Folly Beach Public Beach, deepen your understanding of the past and present with Lowcountry Walking Tours, and get engrossed in the history at Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon.
