Charleston

4.4
Gardens · Historic Sites · Flea Markets
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.

Where to stay in Charleston

Charleston is serviced by dozens of local hotels and practically every major U.S. chain. Expect to pay top dollar for a room on the downtown peninsula, particularly if you wish to stay in one of the historic hotels. The upside of taking a room there is the proximity of all major attractions--you won't need a car to explore and enjoy your visit. Less expensive options are available in North Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant, where you'll find all kinds of inns for the budget-conscious traveler.
