Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
You'll get in some beach time at Kiawah Beachwalker Park and Isle of Palms Beach. Popular historic sites such as St. Michael's Church and The Charleston Museum are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Old Sheldon Church Ruins (in Yemassee), Freshfields Village (in Kiawah Island) and Beaufort (St. Helena's Anglican Church & Pat Conroy Literary Center). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of McLeod Plantation Historic Site, browse the eclectic array of goods at Charleston City Market, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, and admire the masterpieces at City Gallery at Waterfront Park.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, read our Charleston trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around °F in September, and nighttime lows around °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
