view of Charleston Harbor and stroll past seasonal gardens and several fountains. It is near the City Market and other historical sights. The city is a popular destination for visitors from around the world, which is one reason buying a Charleston timeshare is such a good decision.
Getting a Feel of the Old South
The oldest landscaped gardens in America are at Middleton Place, a fully furnished 1755 plantation house with costumed interpreters demonstrating various aspects of plantation life. After learning about the wealthy side of life, you can visit the Old Slave Mart Museum and the Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon where there are also costumed guides. There, you will get a view of the other side of southern history.
With its abundance of great mansions and beautiful gardens, you can spend your whole vacation seeing historic buildings from your Charleston timeshare. Two of the most famous are the Fireproof Building designed by the first native-born architect who designed the Washington Monument, and the French Huguenot Church built in 1687. One way to have it all organized for you is to attend the Annual Festival of Houses and Gardens in March and April when the buildings and gardens are in perfect condition. Many tours highlight different aspects of the area. Charleston is also famous for its unique cuisine and it offers culinary tours so you can try the best.
The beaches are also terrific, including Folly Beach where kids can have a great time. For a more upscale experience, you may try Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms. The warm, gentle waters are great for swimming especially in summer.
Great Activities for Children
While the adults are enjoying the food and history, children love the activities including High Ropes Course Adventure, one of several ghost tours around the so-called haunted places in the city and a harbor cruise where you will see Fort Sumter and the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum. Kids also like Hazel Parker Playground where there are tennis courts, a dog park, an athletic field, a basketball court, a playground and more. You will also find inshore fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, boat charters and the unique fly boarding.
For a great vacation any time of the year, consider a Charleston timeshare to get the most out of your vacation budget.
