Planning Your Charleston Day Trips
What are the best things to do in Charleston if you’re only going to be here for one day? That’s a favorite question among the masses.
My answer… that’s a tough question!
Charleston is full of great attractions, tours, shopping and dining. And it doesn’t stop there. Doing Charleston in a day will only make you want to come back for more… and that’s OK!
I’ve tried to make it easier for you by putting together a few themed one-day itineraries. Nothing here is a one-size-fits-all solution. So use the following simply as suggestions and curtail them to your liking.
