In August my wife and I took a weekend trip to Charleston SC. We took our Teardrop trailer and stayed on Joint Base Charleston. Joint Base Charleston is a base comprised of Air Force and Navy and we stayed on the Navy side for a very reasonable price. If you are military or Retired military don't forget to check out military bases for camping spots they are very reasonable, clean and safe. Charleston is a big place with lots to do and you can't see it all on a weekend. My suggestion is to divide it into smaller trips to really get a good taste of Charleston. That's what we did. We decided to just go to the historic downtown area of Charleston and take a guided tour of the city from the back of a horse drawn carriage. Beside the downtown there are many things to see in Charleston. There is the Air Craft Carrier Yorktown that is a floating Museum that I really want to go see. There is Fort Sumter with all of its Civil War History which I think you have to take a ferry or water taxi to get to. There are museums and an aquarium that you can go see if the weather gets rainy. Folly Beach isn't far with all the beach things that you come to expect from a coastal community. There are old Plantations that you can visit like Magnolia Plantation. There is the Angle Oak Live Oak tree that is estimated to be over 500 years old located at Angle oak park. So you can see that there is lots to do and oh yea! Charleston is known for its fine restaurants! Lots to do and see and eat in Charleston!
