Experience Your Best Charleston Vacation
Southern charm will certainly cast a spell as you wander cobblestone streets filled with pastel mansions, antique shops and horse-drawn carriages. But beneath the antebellum exterior, a Charleston vacation also brings vibrant nightlife, ultra-chic shopping and a robust local-food scene. And make time for kayaking, a picnic on the beach, and the barrier islands … you might even run into Bill Murray at The Joe.
Before you plot your Old South getaway, let Orbitz help you with the planning. Our insider tips highlight Charleston's must-see neighborhoods, colonial plantations, and Civil War hotspots.
