Soak Up the Sun

Beautiful year-round weather and quick access to the beach — what more do you need? Charleston's ideal location along the South Carolina coastline and Charleston Harbor means you're never far from a fun fishing excursion, river cruise, beach trip, or scenic hike. Be sure to explore White Point Garden in historic Downtown Charleston, Mount Pleasant Pier on the Charleston Harbor, and Francis Marion National Forest in nearby Huger, SC. If you're new to the area, read our Charleston area guide to find more fun things to do.

Experience Rich History

Charleston can trace its roots back centuries, so you're sure to find something intriguing at every corner. In the heart of Charleston is the historic City Market, a 200-year-old marketplace that features everything from sweetgrass baskets to sweet treats. Museums and historic buildings (such as the United States Custom House) are sprinkled throughout the downtown area, too. In the middle of Charleston Harbor is Fort Sumter, a Civil War landmark that can only be reached by boat.

Play Like the Pros

Charleston's golf courses are among the most scenic and prestigious in South Carolina — if not in the whole country — so it comes as no surprise (to longtime locals, at least!) that these golf courses are chosen as the backdrop for premier tournaments every year. Kiawah Island Golf Resort's Ocean Course, for instance, hosted the 2003 World Golf Championships World Cup, the 2007 Senior PGA Championship, and the 2012 PGA Championship, just to name a few!
