Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Change things up with these side-trips from Charleston: Prince George Winyah Episcopal Church (in Georgetown) and Brookgreen Gardens (in Murrells Inlet). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, take in the views from Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, hunt for treasures at Charleston City Market, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

For photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Charleston online trip maker .

In December, daily temperatures in Charleston can reach 63°F, while at night they dip to 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
