  1. Museums
    If you are coming to Charleston for the first time, don't miss visiting some of the museums and other historic sites. Read the list below and plan your trip to include those places that interest you most. You can always come back to Charleston and map out more of the historic sites for your future visit.
  2. Ft Sumpter
    Decades of growing strife between North and South erupted in civil war on April 12, 1861, when Confederate artillery opened fire on this Federal fort in Charleston Harbor. Fort Sumter surrendered 34 hours later. Union forces would try for nearly four years to take it back.
  3. Old Charleston
    Known as the Holy City, Charleston houses a variety of churches scattered throughout the historic city, and the multitude of churches gives way to a sense of religious diversity. Numerous steeples poke out among the buildings in Charleston's cityscape, and the history encompassed in these numerous churches dates back to the birth of America. Tours are offered to view these historical and architectural masterpieces, and a blend of history and beauty combine to make this an exciting way to take a trip into Charleston's eclectic past.
  4. Battery
    One of the best spots to get to know Charleston, South Carolina is Battery Park. This lovely spot on the waterfront features southern mansions, cannons, cannon balls, oak trees, palmettos, statues, a gazebo, and incredible views of Fort Sumter, Castle Pinckney, and the Sullivan Island Lighthouse.
