You probably know about its must-see shopping centres and museums, but don't forget that Charleston has some pleasant natural sights too. Congaree National Park and Givhans Ferry State Park are two names to keep in mind. For some more breathing space, make your way to Wannamaker County Park and Cypress Gardens.

If you're feeling inspired, also feast your eyes on the displays at the Pink House Gallery and the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art.

The best way to understand what's happening in the present is to step back into the past. Find out how this city came to be the destination it is today at the Charleston Museum and the Summerville Dorchester Museum.
