  • 1. Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum
    Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum, Mount Pleasant

    Awesome! Plan on spending all day! Even my wife liked it! There's a lot of history inside the aircraft carrier about other ships, wars, etc.

  • 2. South Carolina Aquarium
    South Carolina Aquarium, Charleston

    Great! The different areas of the Carolinas were interesting. A lot of kids were there. You can buy a package ticket for the aquarium, IMAX, and Fort Sumter and save.

  • 3. Fort Sumter National Monument
    Fort Sumter National Monument, Sullivan's Island

    Very interesting. Nice boat ride over. I would not recommend going on last tour. We only had 45 minutes once we got there, which wasn't enough time to see everything, take pictures, etc.

  • 4. Charleston IMAX

    If you go, you have to see a 3-D movie. We saw an under the sea. Awesome!

  • 5. Charleston Crab House
    Charleston Crab House-Market St, Charleston

    Went to the Crab House off of Wappoo Creek. This one was featured on "Flip this House!" Good food and atmosphere, probably not as busy as the downtown one on the weekend.

  • 6. Magnolia Plantation and Gardens
    Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, Charleston

    Pretty even though we went in late September. There were still some flowers blooming. The Camelias were pretty and smelled wonderful. Didn't tour the house.

  • 7. Audubon Swamp Garden
    Audubon Swamp Garden, Charleston

    At the Magnolia Plantation. This was OK. Nothing special. We saw a couple of alligators and not many birds.

  • 8. Hyman's Seafood
    Hyman's Seafood, Charleston

    Excellent! We went on a weeknight and walked right in! Great seafood, atmosphere, etc. Had one of the nicest waitresses ever (college student)!

  • 9. Folly Beach
    Folly Beach

    Only 10 minutes from the Residence Inn / Riverview Mariott. The public beach park on the south end was nice. Went 3 days.

  • 10. Sullivans Island
    Sullivan's Island

    Visited one night after dinner. Seemed OK. It was different than other beaches we've been to in that there are woods/forests between the actual beach and the closest houses.

  • 11. Tanger Outlet, Charleston SC

    Nice outlets for shopping. Some even have outlet prices. Same stores basically as other Tanger outlet centers
