Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
On the 30th (Mon), admire the natural beauty at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and then take in the views from Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. Keep things going the next day: browse the exhibits of Fort Sumter National Monument, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, then go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour, and finally get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

Founded in 1632 as a fortified settlement on the high ground between two rivers, Williamsburg served as a colonial capital of Virginia for over 80 years.

There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Colonial Williamsburg, step aboard Jamestown Settlement, browse the exhibits of Historic Jamestowne, and witness the site of a historic battle at American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
