Top Ten Sights
Take a horse drawn carriage for a tour of Charleston's narrow streets lined with beautifully preserved buildings from the colonial and antebellum periods.
Stroll through The Battery or White Point Gardens, where pirates once dangled from the gallows, for spectacular views of the harbour and distant Fort Sumter.
Take a tour around some of the famous plantations and gardens, for a glimpse into life during the antebellum era. Include Boone Hall Plantation, with its majestic avenue of moss-draped oaks, or Magnolia Plantation, built in the 1670's and Middleton Place, for America's oldest landscaped gardens.
Visit the area's lush sea islands of Kiawah, Seabrook and the Isle of Palms. With endless sundrenched beaches washed by the warm surf of the tropical gulf stream currents, the islands offer watersports of every kind including sailing and deep sea fishing.
Visit Catfish Row, the inspiration for America's first opera, 'Porgy and Bess', where vendors once peddled their produce along the roadside. Now private homes and speciality shops line the area.
Tour historic sights such as Fort Moultrie, the scene of the first decisive American victory of the Revolution, and Fort Sumter, the man-made island fortress where the Civil War began.
