Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago. The romantic city seems frozen in another, earlier, simpler time--the town went through the Civil War with little property damage, so its historic section boasts buildings that are centuries old. A trip to Charleston is definitely a journey back in time, with plenty of chances to admire antebellum architecture and savor the local cuisine. In the high season, you'll jostle with thousands of visitors pleasantly dazed by the scent of gardenia, jasmine, and honeysuckle. During the mild winter, you'll find thinner crowds and more room to enjoy a relaxing vacation in Charleston. With our online itinerary creator, United States vacations can be built around trips to Charleston and other destinations in United States.
