Those with some time to spare in Charleston will not want to miss out on Magnolia Cemetery and Marion Square.

Whatever your background or beliefs, you'll appreciate the peaceful atmosphere at Kiawah Island’s holy places like the St. Philip's Church, the French Huguenot Church and the St. Michael's Episcopal Church.

If you love to shop, shop til you drop amid the boutiques, stores and stalls at Tanger Outlets in North Charleston and the Charleston City Market.

Charleston is the home ground of the legendary Charleston Southern Buccaneers college basketball team in winter and South Carolina Stingrays ice hockey team. Both teams compete in regular games at North Charleston Coliseum, North Charleston. If sports are not your thing and you’d rather see a touring band or performer in action, check the stadium’s website for dates and prices.

When you’re ready to wind down after checking out the many charms of Kiawah Island, check in to one of the area's many accommodation options. Take your pick from the Francis Marion Hotel, the Town & Country Inn and Suites, or the Belmond Charleston Place.
