What are your recommendations for a young couple spending a week in Charleston, SC? We are in our late 20s-early 30s, and enjoy historic sites, museums, good restaurants, shopping, etc. We are definitely more urban vacationers, and not so much into beaches, nature walks, or parties.
We've been looking into some packages offered by the Charleston Area Convention and Visitor Bureau
, having had good luck with packages like this in the past. These combine hotels with different historic sites, walking tours, meals at restaurants, etc.
I'm not opposed to booking these sorts of things on my own, so suggest away! We need a week's worth of activities. We're looking for historic places (of course, Civil War history is included in this, but anything historic we'd be interested in), museums (art, history, or otherwise), great restaurants (fancy or not), maybe somewhere to go for a walking tour of the city, shopping areas, and anything else you think we might enjoy!
We will have a car, so even though we will have driven quite a distance to get there, I don't think a drive of less than 1 hr. for a day's activity nearby is out of the question.
We'll be in town at the end of September, is there anything special going on around that time?
(Yes, I saw this
recent question, but was hoping for answers specific to my timeframe and our dislike of outdoor activities. Will definitely be taking some of the suggestions posted there, though.)
Sorry to ask anonymously, but I don't like posting my travel plans online. If you need additional info or anything, you can e-mail me at email@example.com.
