Local Charleston college students are often the first to take advantage, (read: skip class), to enjoy the city’s warm sunny weather. Follow their example by getting outdoors, and heading to one of Charleston’s many parks or three area beaches. Take a short drive to visit Charleston's favorite tree on John's Island, or plan a picnic lunch at Battery Park downtown.
Families and young children visiting Charleston may want to try their hand at recycled arts and crafts at the Children's Museum, or even feed local shrimp to stingrays at the South Carolina Aquarium. Visit the USS Yorktown, a retired World War 2 aircraft carrier turned interactive educational ship, at the Patriot’s Point Naval and Maritime Museum.
Charleston’s rich, centuries old American history is all around you in the buildings, markets, and cobble stone streets. Why not take a step back in time to learn more of Charleston’s story by visiting local museums, taking a carriage tour, or visiting a traditional Southern plantation?
