MUST see and do....

Heading to Augusta to visit hubby who is on a job, while there we would like to get out and see some of the must see and do's in Savannah and Charleston. Are there any beautiful beaches to walk in Charleston? Any input regarding things to do and see would be GREATLY appreciated!!! I'll be there for 1 week.

If you do want to read before you get to the Charleston area, try a couple of Dorthea Benton Frank's novels, they will certainly get you "in the mood" and you can visit all the places she mentions, just like in the Bill Noel novels.

You will definitely need more than just a few days if you want to see all the Historic District has to offer, a plantation or two and check out a few of our wonderful beaches (Folly, Sullivans Island, Isle of Palms, Kiawah or Seabrook Islands). If you're interested in seeing the rural side of the Lowcountry, here is a great trip for an afternoon (it includes our local winery/distillery, too)...

You can spend a day exploring the area south of Charleston (John's Island, Wadmawlaw Island)...

You can hit the Angel Oak on the way...

The only tea plantation in the United States...

And the winery (which includes the Firefly Distillery, as well)...

Mustard Seed or Boulevard Diner (James Island) are two of our favorites for dinner. Great place to stop on your way back to Charleston.

You'll have a great time in Charleston!

I understand if you are a beach lover, but when in Charleston, see downtown Charleston (nothing against those beautiful beaches!) Just spend a day walking downtown around the Market and King Street. Also head down Battery St to see some of the most amazing real estate. History, shopping, good food and much more all right within walking distance!
